Another COVERT MISSION. Last night, afterhours, Dan and I snuck into a fancy underground mall to make a SCRIPT super wall like the one I made for my art show called TipsyTipsy. I thought I'd most some pictures in case there were curious minds. It was like an art adventure! It was sort of the OPPOSITE of breaking in and stealing. We were breaking in and gifting art. How awesome is that? (okay, we didn't actually break in - we had a key... but it still felt pretty bad ass.) LOKA BOUTIQUE is a womens wear shop with amazing clothes, but even cooler owners (Hi Anita!). They felt their new store was missing something and needed some ooompf. It's their second location and has a location and window wall to DIE FOR. Dan was walking by one day and they got to talking and the new FASHION SCRIPT wall idea was born. I hadn't seen the space until I got there last night. I curated a collection of my most "fashionable" SCRIPT pieces. There are some old favourites of mine and some NEW SCRIPTS created just for this location.
And up it went. Piece by piece.
I think it turned out pretty sweet. The wall is a little smaller than I was anticipating. I am still pretty pumped about the SUPERWALL from TipsyTipsy. So truthfully - I think the installation would look better if the SCRIPT pieces were half the size and there were twice as many. But, I roll like that. It was fun working with Dan. We're a pretty good team even though we come at things from the opposite angles. He's a pretty unbelievable person to have on your team. I love that guy.
If you're in Winnipeg - definitely stop by LOKA in the Richardson Concourse to take a look. Pick up a cool new top and maybe a fabulous piece of SCRIPT ART, too. Or a rad Matt & Nat bag with a fabulous piece of SCRIPT art. Or something like that. (BOYFRIENDS + HUSBANDS, DAD: this is a GREAT place to do your holiday shopping.)
Today: I'm painting, designing, puttering and getting some shipping ready. Hopefully there will be one more post. This weekend is birthday paloooooza as the holidays take it into high gear for our family. Party central!
