2009 LA MYTH Art Show "Super Popo"

This is my other 11x14 acrylic on canvas paintings for the 2009 LA MYTH Art Show (curated by Dee Chavez and Aaron Clark). The opening reception is Feb 7, 2009 at Meltdown Comics 7522 Sunset Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90046.


The theme of the show is LA myths:

Meet Super Popo! You know all those thousands of poos you find on the sidewalks of Los Angeles? Yeah, the ones we think are from dogs? They are actually gifts from Super Popo, an illegal alien luchador (Mexican masked wrestler) from outer space. Those poos are his kind-hearted gifts to Angelinos for shooting their guns and sending him bullets on Cinco de Mayo.

I love LA...

Thanks Shane! Yeah, we went to your Coraline panel and I almost threw up from being drunk by the super beauty of what you guys did. Seriously, you have raised the bar. You are at the top of your game my friend. I can't wait to see what you do next!

We should have lunch soon so I can bore the poo out of you with even more praise!
