France part 2!

Better late then never! These are pictures from Lyon and Paris from last September.

The train to Paris. I was going into the city to attend the opening of "HEY: Modern Art and Pop Culture" at Halle Saint Pierre Museum. Wow the French countryside is amazing and beautiful...

Paris was fun though I was only there two nights. Got to explore underground with some friends... and I brought some chalk...
 

I suck at all nighters these days, but I had a great time. Got back to my hotel with enough time to take a much needed shower before going to meet press (and some clowns) at the museum. My friend Dave Cooper was in Paris as well! The opening was a bit later so I squeezed in a nap between press interviews and the nightime opening. I felt like I was squandering my time sleeping, but Paris will be around...

AlexOne had a nice piece in the show.

Got to meet and hang out with Jean Claude Mezieres, the famous French comic artist. Turns out, he's married to my grandma's cousin!

Turf One!!! Nice to meet this guy!

 These ads were all over the Metro... Bikini Burger Party!!!

The next morning, Dave and I met Jean Claude at his studio...

And back on the fast train to Lyon to paint some more...

Dinner with friends in Lyon! Reg Mombossa, Naoto Hattori, Caia Koopman, Nicolas Thomas, Odo, and Kevin, Jerome and the rest of the Spacejunk crew.... Yes, I tried a small piece of horse... and I'm kind of ashamed (dammit is was actually pretty good).

Happy Sperm!  I think all the wine gave me more courage than normal...

The next day got to finishing my large chat mural. 

More wine induced old school bubble letters. 

France= fun, wine, cheese and awesome people. I'll be back....
