Wow, cool!

My show!I had the opening for my art show on Saturday, an wow what a crowd! We had bunches of people come an see my work, which was really cool.

I tink I most got a kick out of how many people who visited, decided to put on their own kid avatar versions of themselves, and come to the show. Definitely not anything anyone hadda do, but still really nice to see that I inspired em.

I'll be there for about two more weeks, at Livingtree, and I'll be there purty frequently. I also rigged up a system dat allows you to hear a little bit of information about each piccie, too.
