Dear Shepard,

Last Thursday(9.16.10), Shepard Fairy had his solo show opening at Subliminal Projects.
I was so ready for his interview!
But I wasn't aware of the frantic scene!

and......I was too hungry to wait in line to get in the gallery!..I know it's lame.

So I drove back with tears in my eyes.
I was going to ask him about how he is able to balance two-worlds. His roots are in the street art world but he is gradually spreading his branches into museums and galleries as a fine artist. Does he miss the thrill of "paste and run"? 

I didn't get to ask him any of my questions but the sweet potato chips were yummy that night.

p.s: As we all know those obama posters were done by Shepard Fairy and I hope I don't get into any trouble using them here.:)
