Wow! ARTLESS was a HUGE success! I want to thank Josh Tripoli for inviting me to participate in ARTLESS. Josh created something extremely special tonight and I’m excited to see what he does next. He is a great guy and Wichita is extremely lucky to have him.
Tonight I got to meet Chuck Dooms, Steve Murillo, Armando Minjarez and Kylie Millward in the real world for the very first time. It was great to finally meet these amazing artists that I have admired from afar. I’m a little sad that I was too preoccupied with my own station to partake in the craziness. I did manage to draw a doodle on Wade Hampton’s painting before the crowd arrived. It was really great to see so many people engaged in the creative process.
I had a wonderful time drawing and painting with everyone. Here is a small sample of the dozens of drawings and paintings that I collected tonight. Tomorrow I will start creating my own Frankenstein monster using all of these wonderful drawings and paintings that all of you made for me. I’m excited to see what happens. Don’t forget to come to CityArts on Final Friday to see the final product!
Right now I’m going to be lazy and watch TV with my dogs.
