Bad Dads: A Tribute To Wes Anderson- Lopo Gallery SF

Sunday, October 31, 2010 4:10:17 AM PDT

Stopped by the newly opened Lopo Gallery to see this incredible show put on by Spoke Art Editions. The gallery was slammed, and there were so many wonderful paintings. Wes Anderson + Badass art + San Francisco +Halloween = Hipster Magnet. Lot's of wonderful themed costumes were in attendance. The audience at the show was half of the fun/attraction... You know how Blizzcon and Anime Expo have alot of nerds/geeks? Well imagine that but with hipsters. Everyone was dressed to the nines in their favorite Wes Anderson costumes. (some may have not been dressing up) The showing was very strong, we overheard one of the artists mention they were approached about the show over a year ago, the time spent and dedication put into this show was really apparent.

Congratulations to all the phenomenal artists involved! It was really an impressive and memorable show.

These are just some of our favorites, there was so much more art.  It was so full it was difficult to get photos and we couldnt get everything.

Ryden x Miu Miu You decide

Sunday, March 28, 2010 6:44:15 AM PDT

Legendary Fashion house Miu Miu influenced by Pop Surrealism and Mark Ryden?

While in Vegas I visited City Center's new ultra high end shopping space. (I hesitate to call it a mall). One of the massive campaigns for the new Las Vegas Miu Miu store really caught my eye. It was two massive ads, and must have been 2 to 3 stories high by several hundred feet long. (much larger than a standard billboard.)
