I just got back from my honeymoon in the USA, which also coincided with DesignerCon, an amazing convention specialising in designer toys and low brow art.
Myself and Seymour shared a booth at the convention, and we did alright for two kiwi boys from the other side of the world.
Some of the highlights were meeting a bunch of cool artists including Tim Stephson, Chris DOGT, Zach Taylor, Actually and the amazing Double Parlour.
We visited among others La Luz De Jesus Gallery, D.O.G.T. Gallery (Chris and Kiki are legends go visit them in Oakland!) The Museum of Death, Yosemite National Park and the Super7 store in Haight Ashbury. Myself and my wife also made it to all three Amoeba Records.
Another massive highlight for me was the Designer Con/Secret Walls after party, where we got to see the legends Lamour Supreme and Skinner have a live painting battle.
California really is a beautiful part of the world and such a state of contrasts, we managed to take in San Francisco, Oakland, Western California, Yosemite, Lone Pine, Death Valley, Livermore, Las Vegas and Henderson, Berkeley, Los Angeles, and Pasdena. I personally can't wait to go back, Californians are such positive and friendly people (must be the weather).
