Met Paciano in the hallway near his photos he shot. The project shows girls in the different room at Hotel Des Arts…I love it man…Project: Valentines. The photos were printed by Walls360, and I wanted to draw on one. So Paciano pointed one out…we put 5 minutes on the clock…and did a collaboration right then and there.

&THEM Card by Turtle Wayne

December 21, 2010

I made these crazy doodle cards for the &THEM curators to pass out during the opening reception at the Winter Art Show at Hotel des Arts (artwork will still be up until mid March).

I put each member into the drawing.

When I passed out my crazy doodle Turtle Wayne cards and showed how they connected…Neal of the &THEM crew said…”THAT IS SO SICK!!!!”  So I had the &THEM cards form that phrase when you connect them.

The &THEM crew passed out and autographed their cards at the opening reception of the Winter Art Show at Hotel des Arts. Guests were hunting down the four curators so they could collect all four cards and connect them. It was great.

In 3 days…

I’ve been preparing for the show for the past couple of months, and it’s this week. Wow.

I made some cards with my crazy artwork on it.  If you would like one…just ask me at the Winter Art Show.
