We took a quick trip up to Frisco for a photo exhibit at Aversano Galleria, just days before our very own Los Feliz grand opening art show. It was my first ever photo show, entitled "Octaves" and some NorCal friends showed up for the opening. It was during the baseball playoffs and raining cats & dogs. Fun night... the show ended up selling out, thanks Tony! All of the 11 photos were goth themed for Halloween and taken in New England - mainly Salem, Marblehead, Boston & Coventry. The prints from this show will be available June 2011 here at DIYshirts.com.

Today we had the privilege of doing a big run of t-shirts for epic Blizzard Entertainment, for their upcoming release of Diablo III videogame. The shirts were a joke, for employees only, who wore them at a trade show. These tees were never made available for sale, despite the huge demand. I delivered this order to Blizzard in Irvine and the security there was tighter than any movie/tv/recording studio I've ever been to! Here's a link to the write-up.
