Phranc of California
Well! Show tonight was swell! lot's o' friends showed up. I originally called the show "SWIM" but now think it should just be called "Phranc of Caifornia" my new "Label". Eastside Studio's space was perfect for the show and Johnny & Doug were faboulous and fastdious host. I feel very lucky and happy. Now on to more work! Alison Bechdel's coming to L.A. topromote her new book "Fun H.ome" next week. We will be working together on a show in September in her home state of Vermont at Liza Cowan's Pine Street gallery in Burlington.
