My good friend John Swift is a very talented musician and he is also an astrophysicist! Did I spell that right?! haha. He has put out a coloring contest and this is my submission! His girl, Gloria, designed the poster! I am quite found of her design because, yes, there are birds! Anything with birds is a go! I hope to win the contest, but if not, it was worth all the fun!

Downtown Ventura was a happening place at Wetsand Surfshop for the 4th Annual Art, Music and TOMS Shoes Event. Here is how it works:
1. Come to Wetsand Surfshop 2. Purchase a pair of Toms Shoes. 3. Get your Toms custom styled. 4. Hang with your friends and meet new friends. 5. Listen to music!
The DJ was jammin. It was like listening to my own personal playlist that I listen to at home! The people were all so psyched on their newly painted shoes. The artists were superb. And there was also a cute golden retriever dog hanging out in the store, which makes me really happy. Yippee for a successful event.
So....here are some photos from the night! Photo Credit: Scott Soens First...let us meet the artists.
