Rooftop patios, ocean air, sun & friends.

You know you’re having a good time when the group hardly stops telling stories and laughing to take many pictures… Kate and I were just saying how we forgot to take any pictures of the lovely people who met us last night in Santa Monica, but Gabby apparently took this of us as things were winding down… I’m grateful to have this snapshot memory of a wonderful afternoon and evening.
Thanks to Andrew, Ashley, Seth, Eric, CeCe, Cyril, Chris, Adrienne, John, and Gabby for making us feel welcome in your lovely oceanside air.

Each week at Saatchi Art, we visit the studio of one of our artists. We check out their studio, take a peek inside their sketchbooks and, best of all, learn more about what inspires them. Read on and discover exciting new details about this week’s featured artist, Kirsty Warman.

I think me likey.

The view from my office today. Wait, I’m on vacation this weekend. Right. Come meet the lovely Kate and myself at Zengo at 3:30. Drinks on the roof. It’s a beautiful day.

And what about John Coltrane and Billie Holiday?

The corporations that profit from permanent war need us to be afraid. Fear stops us from objecting to government spending on a bloated military. Fear means we will not ask unpleasant questions of those in power. Fear permits the government to operate in secret. Fear means we are willing to give up our rights and liberties for promises of security. The imposition of fear ensures that the corporations that wrecked the country cannot be challenged. Fear keeps us penned in like livestock.
(Chris Hedges, ‘The Death of the Liberal Class’)
