I Painted at Voodoo Lounge, and traveled to see B-day Josie at Deity

Hot and humid.... "sweating balls" as my brothers would say as I stood on the corner waiting for my art friend Lexi Bella on 1st ave on 1st street. Yeah I was lost, I thought I knew where was voodoo lounge was. Apparently even the name of the place changed, to Luck Chang I believe. Either way, I was lead to Voodoo Lounge, and there she was and also another cool ass person, Natalie Crue, who I met via the infamous Facebook.

The night was way cool... its been a while were I was able to really listen to Underground hip hop. It was so so SO motivating... Got me really into my art. Now mind you, I created that painting at the most interesting lighting source, dim and red. The Red light bulb and its low luminance power was the lighting setting for this really cool urban atmosphere, kinda jazzy romantic to say the least. The Brown Paper Bag All Starts were on stage after a long time of tuning the equipments and sounds. Professional were these guys.

Towards the end of the night a fella by the name of Maxx wanted to buy my painting, and so you have it, a happy young man !
