Another Friggin' Art Show...

Last night Jay and I went out in support of one of his art buddies who had a solo show at Rotofugi, Chicago's premier seller of designer toys. The first time I saw Joey D.'s artwork was on the wall of the You Are Beautiful Project on State Street. I kinda dig the colors and the kooky subject matter, and the intricacies of the multi-layered wood cutouts of some of the pieces. Alas, prices for his artwork range from about $250 to about $1600 (eek!!) so no hope of snatching one there. We did have a great time looking at the pieces though and met up with our friend Natasha who was recovering from an awful allergy to her pet. Warm summer night, free Red Bulls from the Red Bull mobile, hanging out on the sidewalk talking. Good shit.

(As usual, click on photo to enlarge, I would recommend it actually, for deets).

Some of the pieces on view:

"Follow The Leader"

"The Meatatarian"

My favorite piece, "Ask Mr. Owl"..multi-layered wood cutout extravaganza

"My Brain Hurts"..Jay's favorite piece

"Underwater Fish Plane"

I don't know the title of this piece

Me and Natasha goofing around at Phoebe Fisher's art show...Heaven Gallery
