It’s January in San Francisco. The chill is starting to let go; the days get a little longer … and here comes the annual Edwardian Ball to entertain and amaze San Francisco’s creative nightlife, and jumpstart the year.

It’s always fun to try and top the preceding year’s effort – to do something really unusual and well-made, beautiful and over-the-top. This year, decked out for street attack aka “Squirt” I made this graffiti-style, billboard-sized wall piece for the event (measuring in at 8 feet by 5 feet), which is proudly hanging on the facade of the Regency Ballroom all weekend, facing San Francisco’s busiest thoroughfare, Van Ness. So you really can not get better placement, and sorry people, that’s a one of a kind. Here’s Edwardian Ball’s head-honcho, Justin Katz, digging my street piece right after installation:
