"I was working for a photographer as his assistant and almost all the jobs we did were at Milk. I guess I was a pretty bad photo assistant as I was fired in December because of the drawings." – Stef Mitchell
Stef would pick up the Milk notepads that were in plentiful supply throughout the building, and during the fleeting moments of calm in the storm of her day, she’d vent on paper with a marker or a ballpoint.
The resulting drawings are blasts of pure id in a workspace dominated by superego.
They are funny, bitchy, and beautiful, clowning fashion magazines, hipster code, art, and pop culture in a spur-of-the-moment way.
Boo-Hooray and Milk are staging a one-day-only exhibition of the drawings, and publishing a limited edition artists book signed and numbered, each containing one of the 114 original drawings.
People: you can come to Boo-Hooray, and choose your drawing, first come first served.
Milk honcho Rassi says he is buying at least 20 and he has damn good taste and is ahead of the curve, just saying.
There will be beer, there will be snacks.
