Photographer and artist, Joe Mehl came down from Phoenix this weekend to pitch this collaboration idea he had, with a staggering amount of enthusiasm and a big ol’ wack of stickers in tow. They looked like this:
That’s Ryan’s photo of Addam’s haircut, doused in fractals and what he calls “light paintings.” Said project will be unveiled sometime in ….2010.
Joe came along to see my lovely and dear friend, Emilie, perform for the halloween edition of Black Cherry Burlesque. After pulling an impromptu all-nighter the night previous, let’s just say that I was in no condition to be out and about at a bewitchingly rowdy bar. So my (equally hungover) friends and I found a quiet, dark, comfy booth in the back, where we ended up missing the first few minutes of the show… the exact minutes we’d pried ourselves out of our beds to see. Oops. Sorry, Emilie! We were even more sorry when we realized how next-level this show had been so far… Mary Poppins and Spock Girl were amazing.
Anyway, it sucked that we weren’t allowed to take photos of the show, but Joe ended up getting some great shots of me my extra styley friend Abraham, and Joe’s friend David wandering around 4th Avenue and Hotel Congress. Wearing my beloved Mary Quant vintage dress almost made up for the hangover… although that didn’t help any with my photogenicity that night.
