Photos from the Stop Telling Women to Smile opening at Betti Ono Gallery on March 7th, 2014. Photos taken by Oakland Art Enthusiast. The exhibition runs through April 19th, featuring a mural by local badass artists Jessica Sabogal and Cece Carpio.

This show features the original drawings of each portrait subject from the series. The large scale posters are of local Oakland women that I met just days before the show. You can see in this show the process of the project - small graphite drawings to large scale wheat pasted posters. 

I wasn’t able to attend the opening but I will be there next week for an artist talk on March 20, 2014.

ive finally figure out the trick to getting a good twist out on my finicky hair: twist while heavily damp (not WET wet), leave in at least an hour, take down before it dries completely.

w00t!

My friend Tyler is trying to lose weight and he asked my other friend Orlando to train him. Tyler was embarrassed to go to the gym though so Orlando is taking care of that by dressing up as characters when they go to the gym so that the focus isn’t on Tyler but on himself. So far Tyler has been trained by a Jedi and steampunk Batman. This is one of the nicest things I have ever seen done for someone else. 

Orlando’s kindness blows me away.

For anyone that has gone to the gym as a larger man it can cause a lot of anxiety, speaking from experience. This is unbelievably sweet.

That is so fucking sweet.

Much respect!

…That’s friendship and love.

This is just the sweetest thing

:):) nice

this is so awesome!
