Last night I was verrry important

Rate: 10 Flag

Last night was the VIP opening of arteBA down here in Buenos Aires. There was some good art, there was lots of bad art, there were some pretty girls, I went home alone. There was no free food! Booo! There was free champagne, but I'm not much of a drinker. I hung out with some friends there and took a bunch of pictures. There was really no reason for me to be nervous, because it was basically a preview of the art fair, not really a party.

My drawings are up in the Appetite booth and they look pretty good. There wasn't room for the big drawings, so they put up 3 small ones and they'll be rotating different ones. I'm excited!

Above: The art at art fairs tends to run to the large (and often banal or downright stupid). I am in the unenviable position beneath that idiotic photo of Jesus and Superman kissing. And people seem to really like that picture. That's an art fair for ya.

I'm very happy with the way my drawings look and I'm absolutely thrilled that I'm in arteBA. If I sell a drawing, I will make like $30 (which is only $5 more than I made hourly at my last job wherein I did virtually nothing). I didn't get into it for the money, obviously.  Even if nothing sells, I'm just happy that I'm in the show. :)

I'm sure it's hard to compete when Jesus and Superman are making out right there ... Thanks for taking us along :)

(((you may have gone home alone because of that purple extravaganza designed by the loverly Troll ... just sayin' ... if you're into pointing fingers and all that )))
It looks like from the photos there were lots of people. How exciting! Too bad no food. Man, who doesn't love free food? The rotation of your work will make it easier to showcase all of them. That's good! Congrats on a nice evening.
I would so totally hang that picture in my home. :-)
Congratulations! A showing is a showing, even if it's beneath Jesus and Superman gettin' it on.
Irritated, I didn't get Freaky's fashion creation in time.
Luis, there were hundreds of people there. It's in like a huge convention room. Last night was the people with money. Actually, I think the people with real money went on Wednesday for the pre-pre-preview.
I hope you don't mean the Jesus photo, Verbal.
Rob, it's a great showing. I'm not complaining. It's a popular gallery and hundreds of people will see them.
NO FOOD! That's just so wrong. Not as wrong as that painting, but pretty close.
i'm with Freaky, i almost couldn't read past the part about no food!!! but you've earned this wonderful night and i hope you sell the drawings. they are fabulous. love love love
