Happy New Years Everyone!  Get another beer, you’ll feel better . A couple Jeopardy episodes ago, Alex asked, “You don’t want to play leap frog with this mythical beast.”  Answer. What is the unicorn?  If you happened to have missed the group show Unicornucopia at Rothick art haus, then this Sun, Jan. 2nd, 12-5pm you can still catch the Unicornucopia Closing Potluck/Art Jam/New Year’s Celebration at Rothick art haus!!!

SEEN: No Naked Faces @ Giant Robot SF


We rented a car and drove very fast up to San Francisco to check out No Naked Faces featuring artist Moto Nakaba, Sean Boyles, and  Michael C. Hsiung (me) at the Giant Robot store on Haight. Here are some photos from the opening . . . We also did stop by the Fecalface 10th Anniversary show, but it was pretty packed and I got me only a few photos.  If I can wrangle some up and unblur a handful, then I’ll have some of those to post up.
