Living in an Artopian World

Went to check out the HATE Exhibition I participated in for Houston's annual Artopia show. The photographer, Jay Marroquin, debuted his collection of powerful images revolving around "hate" as a pervasive concept in both past and present society. You can check out his press release here. I'm one of the girls picnicking in the foreground of the "Not Dead" photo. I love working with Jay, as he has recently become my photography mentor. Plus, he's a pretty cool hangout buddy. He will be capturing multiple shows at New York Fashion Week, and of course, I'm terribly jealous. Instead of sulking, I'm looking forward to hearing about his adventures in the Big Apple.
My friend, Ack!, just recently got asked by Diesel to design a Valentine's Day promo bag for Nordstrom's, so if you are in any of the listed cities, definitely check it out or better yet, get one for your sweetie!
There were a ton of food vendors. The Mediterranean selection was my favorite.
Press-on nail art by Kasey Cargill. Miniature replicas of your favorite art pieces!
Glow-in-the-dark painted hallway with contributions from artists in the show.

Surrounded by cutie pie Tumblrette sisters, Faith Silva and Taylor LaShae.
