Whatcha Doin’ This Friday?

  1. Nothing scheduled? Perfect! 
  2. You happen to be anywhere near San Francisco? Brilliant! 
  3. Like matches? Always a crucial question to ask; I suspected as much!

Well, looks like I have the event for you: the Strike Away show!

Get your rear over to Paxton Gate Curiosities for the opening reception of the Strike Away show and see if you can spy my three pocket-sized art pieces!

Think of it as kinda like a potentially hazardous and flammable Where’s Waldo game!
