Book Signing Party : Count Down! : 3...

Hello to all of you beautiful people caught in the vast virtual universe that encompasses the other side of my computer screen. How is reality treating you today? Have you been graced with any life-changing epiphanies since the last time we connected through my blog? In any case, one step at a time... slow and steady wins the race... more clever euphemisms on the horizon... 

But first...

I would like to fill you in on a little not so secret event coming up at the end of the month. In case you haven't heard about it yet, Graham Smith and yours truly are about to debut their premiere art books with a signing party at the historic SDAI Museum of the Living Artist, in scenic Balboa Park. Here, we intend to personally sign books and display artwork, in addition to providing a festive atmosphere for all those who decide to grace us at our party. This event is free to attend and will feature well crafted delights for all of your senses to enjoy. 

So prepare your musical inclinations for some live, masterful musings by "Man From Tuesday", an acoustic band comprised of Singer/Songwriters, Michael Lille and Andy Lund from Taylor Guitars. 

But let's not forget our precious palates among this flurry of fun... 

Foodies and artists alike, will be thrilled by the delicious tastings planned by Sea Rocket Bistro, noted for their local, farm fresh, sustainable, epicurean delights created by Executive Chef Tommy Fraioli. And, as an added bonus, Blue Moon Brewing Company has decided to pair Sea Rocket's handcrafted hors d'oeuvres with a special selection of their handcrafted beers. 

Tantalize your taste buds with Blue Moon's Valencia Grove Amber or one of several selections from their Vintage Series! Alternative beverage services will also be expertly provided by San Diego's newest modern day neighborhood hangout, Heights Tavern- to ensure that all your cravings will be satisfied. 

Oh! And one last tidbit of information about our event, because this wouldn't be complete without a little artistic input from you...

Please, please, please, anyone and everyone inclined to attend, bring sketchpads and drawing materials to create your own masterpieces during the party. Live models (originally featured in Graham's book) will be present, helping to encourage an atmosphere of creativity as well as bolstering a spirit of celebration in regards to the art of crafting a sketchbook.

During this evening of sensible luxuries and beautiful people, it would be ever so gratifying if you decided to partake in the creative process alongside us, by drawing upon this visual, auditory and tasteful feast.
