Trump on Acid

I chalk arted under black lights for the Party Punx event Trump on Acid at The Airliner Nightclub in Los Angeles on Friday, August 11, 2017.

My drawing brainstorms turned into 3 main ideas: a mouth swallowing the crowd whole, an ironic thumbs up, and some creepy eyes.

It looks like the eyes are doing a can-can dance.

The event was amazing.  It was especially tricky, however, because I needed to balance my table with zines, the live chalking, hanging out with good friends, meeting new people, and catching the music inside, on the two stages.  Not a horrible situation to be in, but I could a used a few more hours to take it all in.

I did a practice run of my zine set-up the day before the event.  My friend Vanessa helped me set it up during the actual event.  I didn’t have room for the stand, but the zines worked fine on the table.

I set up a different table with merch for the album Affection which I collaborated with Operator Error to create.

People seemed to like the I Dated a Sociopath and all I Got was These Poems zine.
