Song of the week: well artist... I used to go see Butch Walker and his old group: Floyd's Funk Revival... he's become the most wanted producer and songwriter as of late... and I can honestly say, I have heard him play "We Got the Beat" from the Go-Go's at Smith's Old Bar...nice thing about Butch-he doesn't forget where his roots are... YAAH! www.myspace.com/butchwalker
http://www.cherrybombatlanta.com/- I heart this store... I love the shoes, accessories and dresses... Shannon keeps this boutique up to date with fashion and has a great staff that takes care of you. It's located in Atlanta's Bohemian neighborhood Little Five Points. It's the PINK shop on Euclid Ave. -the main drag.
News- Prints are available at my site...

Got prints ready to go on Andycakes as you can see.
OFF THE WALL: 1-2-3: As you can see, I have posted the OFW announcement for this year. I really want this to be a big hit...the first year I didn't reach my goal of artists, last year, I didn't either-even though I thought, I did...so I WILL NOT GIVE UP! That's why I am doing it this way... So pass this around to your fellow artists and tell them THAT THEY HAVE TO DO IT...
