I already knew my X-men buddies were going to be in attendance & I was ready to mingle.Too Fly is an absolute sweetheart. I admitted to her that, we have been in many venues at the same time, I just never really bothered to say hi. I hit a lot of venues, and depending on my mood, I’m not always the first one to approach someone else.
I just start snapping away.
She told me she recognized me as well, and we immediately hit it off. Talking about friends in common and travels to Ecuador, which is where she’s living at now.
Long trip from home.
Her work was beautiful and feminine, like it usually is. The details on the roses were exquisite and the T- shirts and hoodies that were on sale were awesome. Pencil Print Circa 95 & Toofly Millie (with her husband Troy, and a long time friend and ex coworker to me) was in charge of the beverages, and I couldn’t be more excited. Her coquitos “Mi Isla” are so delicious. This time I got to try the Pumpkin Pie and Red Velvet.
I absolutely fell in love with the Pumpkin Pie and told her to save me a bottle.
Since I was going to be going to my brother’s house later on, I didn’t want o show up empty handed. These wooden rings were the cutest thing ever and were painted and designed by Toofly herself. Crooklyn’s Chula ♥ This wooden logo was a pin on the one of the hoodies that I just found irresistible. I think the broken pieces of cardboard behind the pieces gave it character, almost making the work jump up at you. Caught Millie, looking stunning behind her coquito stand. Post card Prints with a Dia De Los Muertos feel. This piece had to be one of my favorites. Even though she’s covered so you cant see her face, you can tell she’s absolutely beautiful and has a sense of pride and power by how intense her eyes are. She’s just staring at your soul. It was a cute show, it started to get busier once I started to head out. I got to meet some new friends and catch up with some old ones. No complaints from me.
Congrats on a great show TooFly.

I met up with Q to start off a good night. Red bull was curating a competition where artists participatee in by painting a cooler shaped as a cube. At the end of the night, a winner and two runner ups were chosen. The loft was super grungy yet pretty. Which I admired, I had so many ideas as of how to design it if I was ever to use that space for a wedding.
Hahaha… can you blame me, every since Q proposed ive kept my eyes opened for cute little ideas. Even though I want something tiny, he insists in having something a littke bigger. But lets not get off topic, back to the show. . . We bumped into Philartiste, my awesome, cool ass home skillet. We wandered around looking at all the cool coolers and had a good night. I’ll let you guys enjoy the pics, so you can see some good works from artist like MRS, Indie 184, Cope 2, Phetus, Sofia Maldonado, Ur New York, Jerkface, Zimad, Icy & Sot, David M. Cook, Toofly Nyc and many many more. While having a nice walk w Q, I couldn’t help but to fall in love with the moon. It was so bright and beautiful. My camera with its awesome zoom feauture let me take these two shots. AH, I love it!
