Monday, September 15, 2008, 11:59 AMI'd like to thank everyone who came out and supported the Deep Gallery Walk. Kettle filled up from time to time and Avenue Arts showed off the first 3 Uni's to hit the streets.
My work will be at Kettle art until the 27th so if you didn't make it due to weather you have the next two weeks to check out the work.
I might even have some of my exclusive free buttons to give away. Kettle is still full to the brim of pieces that didn't move so you haven't missed out! All of my major pieces are still
available and the majority of my supporting pieces and I think that goes for all the artists. Come out this weekend and experience the CARTOON APOCALYPSE!

This is the same night as my Kettle Show. That being said... Here's a NEWS FLASH! There will be 3 Uni resign casts hand painted by myself and complete with switchblade. This is the very first time Uni's been made available. Each one is completely on of a kind! For now he will only be for sale at the show. I'll be at Kettle Art from 6ish-9:30pm and will make my way to Avenue Arts at 10:00pm-everyone leaves. Again this is the 13th and both galleries are full or surprises, trust me!

I along with my boys at Kettle Art have brand new, never before seen custom skate decks for this show. I'll be there ready to party and I live in the building so Keep an eye on me. Anyway, Guapo Skateboards presents an evening of spectacular art, style, skateboarding, and infinite fun benefiting Texas Scottish Rite Hospital For Children, St.Philips School & Community Center, and The Dallas Arts Community.
The evening will begin with Cocktails & Hors-d'oeuvres and showcase 120 skateboards designed/painted by either a celebrity artist, a St.Philips student, a graphic designer, or a local artist. Throughout the evening guests will have the opportunity to bid on and purchase their favorite artist’s skateboard & other auction items.
The evenings proceeds will help support the Texas Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital. TSRHC treats Texas children with orthopedic conditions, such as scoliosis, clubfoot, hand disorders, hip disorders and limb length differences, as well as certain related neurological disorders and learning disorders, such as dyslexia.
Following the Art Auction, the winning student design from the St.Philips School & Community Center will be announced and receive “The Art of Skateboarding” 2008 Award. The winner will also receive a US savings bond to use towards their college fund.
