Down in Deep Ellum

Last weekend I headed over to Dallas to check out the Deep Ellum Arts Festival — I’d never been before and my buddy David Pound from Tennessee had a booth at the show (Click here to see more awesomeness). I figured if he could drive 12 hours to get there, I could drive two and a half, y’know?

I met David at the Porter Flea last summer and we quickly became “art bros”, so it was good to see him again...I even gave him a TOOMASOOBA version of one of his characters on Saturday (photo below). The crowds were snapping up his sculpture work like crazy and the festival was a great time. Such a great time, in fact, that I might just sign up for next year!

Street-level view (and, in the lower left corner, my thumb).
Customers crammed into David's booth space.
The TOOMASOOBA version of "An Untwained Eye". I tried to pick a
sculpture that I could do justice to - mission accomplished, I think.
The official unveiling of said TOOMASOOBA version.
Stopped to do a little chalk street art later in the day.
