yesterday my friend april higashi paid me a studio visit and then we went to lunch at the ever delicious vik's indian restaurant (which is 2 blocks from my studio). if you've never been there before, you just don't know what you are missing !!! it's worth a visit to my studio JUST to be able to hop over for a quick and tasty meal. april and i worked in design for esprit de corps about a million years ago, and now she is a very fancy jewelry designer and i play with mud. her studio/gallery is in berkeley quite near to mine. check her out when you're checking me out !
