ZFxSF grand opening & signing Saturday Sept 4! 2-4 PM.

So, we have been quietly open for a couple days now in San Francisco and the response has been amazing. Everything I had learned from Mister Roger's Neighborhood about etiquette has finally come into play as we are making new friends left and right, and even some homeless friends too. We don't care what you smell like, we only care about fun and friendship.
Well, tomorrow, or today probably (depending on when you read this as it's Friday night and I'm about 11 hours late on this post) marks our "official" grand opening. We have no ribbon to cut, though. No wine bottles to smash. No virgins to sacrifice. Just a quiet little gathering amongst all of us Rainbow-Around-The-Moon friends and family.
And a nice new limited print release and signing. (info below).
Oh, but Big-Hands Cosby will probably show up again HOPEFULLY!

Putting the finishing touches on the Monster Wall.

Anyway, it's late so sorry if this sounds as scattered as Rain Man's matchsticks, but here is all the info for the official opening/signing, etc:)

248 Fillmore St (Haight & Fillmore, next to Upper Playground)
San Francisco, CA
Opening Event is all day, but I will be signing and hanging from 2-4PM, so come on down and check out the store!

We are releasing a new print of one of my long-time favorite paintings that I did a little while ago that was heavily inspired by this photograph of me at a Rave a few years ago.

And here is the print:

"ARMWHAL" By Alex Pardee

Limited Edition of 100
Hand Signed & Numbered by Alex Pardee
Printed on Velvet Cotton Rag paper with archival inks.

In addition to the regular items that you see on our ONLINE STORE, we have a ton of special items in the retail store, like original art from me, books and prints from artists like Dave Correia, Robert Bowen & Skinner. Variant toys, skateboards, old Calendars from BACK IN THE DAYYYYY, etc. So come on out, its gonna be a nice little fun time. You know. Fun. Fun. Word. Word.
