in which i show you what i had been working on and also, photos of awesome people.
It’s been ten days since my first solo show opened, and I don’t know why it took so long for me to wrangle up the time to post pictures. I think I was hoping people would go instead of just look at photos on blogs (hehe), but I realize that not a lot of people have access to the North, just because it’s so far away from everything else. Except my own house. In any case, these are the pieces I ended up putting up for display.
It was such a great night. Thank you for everyone who dropped by and made it super special. Thanks also to people who talked, tweeted, and wrote about it. I hope to see you in future shows that I am hoping to have. Links to people who wrote about this because I am super happy and thankful:
- TAG ALONG/Nante on Status magazine’s blog.
- Manila Art Blogger/Trickie Lopa. Mostly on Kaloy Sanchez’s.
- Candy magazine online/Macy
- Young Star/Ralph Mendoza
- Living Asia Channel/Chui
- Hunter and Hoarder/Barby
More photos of the works and opening night under the cut. Again, it’s up until December 31 at West Gallery. Hope you can drop by and take a look.
