FRIENDS.

I wanted to share a really special project for the fine people at Ace Hotel NYC,where I was able to spend the past weekend painting a full wall mural in Room 1122. God on a wheel, working on something for 24 hours that had nothing to do with a computer, feels pretty magical. As a former painter, it was a really reflective and important lil' journey to work on.

The image is derived from a desert landscape in Marfa, TX and inspired by the 1971 song "Never Make a Dollar That Way" by David Wiffen, a golden tune that always proves to be a meditative solo listen, best listened to amongst a long horizon.

We will have a fun video to post soon, but want to send some big gratitude vibes to Kalani, Aubrey, Joe, and dear friend the great photographer Jeaneen Lund, who shot the whole ride and threw champagne at me when I almost couldn't paint another line at 3 am...

The great Turquoise Wisdom had originally shared the Wiffen tune many years ago, so it is fitting to spread the word about his new FALL DOWNERS mix for our buds at Aquarium Drunkard. Hmm...wonder who did the cover art.....;)

Big smiles, hope you enjoy, and if ever staying at The Ace, do request the "Rotter Room". -eyebrow wiggles-
