My Pick of the week: Photographer Alexandra Gibson!

I have been meeting some amazing artists and have decided that I'd like to share them with you. So I have decided on bringing you MY PICK OF THE WEEK. I know you will enjoy them as much as I do!


Alexandra Gibson is a photographer with a background in both art photography and journalism, her images carry a strong sense of personal and editorial narrative with an eye for the surreal. Mainly in stark black & white, she explores the boundaries of reality and eroticism. Her subjects have varied from portraits of Academy Award winners to the nightclub scene in Los Angeles, couples engaged in passion to classic boudoir, Ludacris to the band that is going to get discovered.

Gibson shies away from studio photography, preferring to catch her subjects in their "natural environment" - performers backstage, lovers in their beds, friends that have gotten used to her camera, and people at festivals. However, her East Los Angeles studio is open to client request for boudoir shoots & portraiture.

Gibson has been published in various publications and in May 2008 published her first book of fine art photography called "From The Outside In". She has exhibited in Los Angeles, Seattle, and Canada. Her most recent exhibition was at the La Luz de Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles, in 2008.

I remember meeting David Choe at San Diego Comic Con, what must be something like 10 years ago. I believe he was promoting his graphic novels at that time. Eric Nakamua of Giant Robot introduced me as Choe has been a regular contributor to Giant Robot magazine, and I have been a fan of his work and loosely followed his career ever since. This month David is on the cover of Juxtapoz Magazine (excuse me he has 5 different covers) and had a huge solo show open up in Beverly Hills, last night, which I was fortunate to attend. Steve Lazarides, the same british art promotor who brought Banksy here to us in 2006, has taken over an 8,000 sq foot venue to host Choe's solo show titled "Nothing To Declare".

It was super exciting for me to meet Elliot Roberts, the music manager best known for helping start the careers of Neil Young and Joni Mitchell, who is photographed below here with his purchase and Tegan Quin of Tegan and Sara (who he also signed back in 1999).

Elliot's son Zack is also an art collector and here he is with his new investment:

It was great seeing David again and if you happen to be in the 90210 and want to do some shopping I highly recommend going by:

Thrilling Adventure Hour

Acker & Blacker’s The Thrilling Adventure and Supernatural Suspense Hour is a staged comedy production in the style of an old-time radio show that proves radio is still the king of all media!

A sophisticated comedy sprinkled with affectionate homage to 1940’s era radio, the Thrilling Adventure… program features three non-serialized serials in each episode, as well as jingles and messages from sponsors such as Patriot Brand Cigarettes (“Good for your Constitution”).

Ben Acker and Ben Blacker write and produce a new show each month and have since March 2005.

The Thrilling Adventure and Supernatural Suspense Hour is performed by nicely-dressed performers whom you’ll recognize from television, comedy clubs, the UCB and Second City stages, and the movies. Each and every one of them is raring to take down Garrison Keillor’s troupe of yellow-bellied thesps in a rumble, anytime, anywhere.
