A few months ago a delightful woman named Amanda came in to our flagship store at 223 Mcdermot, she loved the artwork and naturally we got to talking.  I explained the meanings behind my work, that resonated with her and the foundation she works with.  Amanda, oddly enough, was looking for an artist she could partner with for the upcoming Inner City Youth Alive Gala, October 30th.  She came back with her boss Kent a few weeks later and we had a great conversation about the Gala and its direction, the theme "Love is" was pretty much tailor made for me to run with...
