We start at my solo show in at SkinPerfect Aesthetics in Burien. I've never been to the B-Town Beat before, but it seems to be gaining traction. SkinPerfect is a beautiful location, my work practically shines against the soft grey walls.

It's a little on the early end, and there aren't many art walkers about yet, so we pop across the street to Phoenix Teas and end up meeting Virginia Wright, the director of the Burien Arts Council, and she treats us to a miniature tea service.
A little down the road is Jesse Link's solo show at the Burien Press, so we stop in for a look, a chai, and a couple of free Girl Scout cookies.

And we're off to Pioneer Square to make an appearance at Corey's opening for "An Evening of Light-Hearted Horror" the HappyTime Apocalypse group show I curated at Laika Lounge. We arrive with plenty of time to catch up with fellow HappyTime artists Sami Saurus, Dusty Rockets, Jeanne Young, and Kendall BH. The walls are awash with adorable creepiness, and it's difficult to pull ourselves a way, but a few more venues await...
