04 Apr McLeod Residence – The Laser’s Edge
The McLeod Residence might be located in Belltown, but it is surprisingly chill. HAHA. This evening’s major feature was a table full of Oreos and an exhibit where local artists submitted their artwork to folks from 5280 Lasers to create laser-carved skateboards. Cool idea, with some cool results.
My favorite board of the evening was by Augie Pagan, whose comic book style illustration skills are wonderful. His also happened to be one of the most ornate, which helped.
Michael Jackson, made out of cereal. OH YES. Artist name? Unknown. Help a sista out. Check out the cereal words, though, which assert that INDEED, MJ IS THE “KING OF POP”!
But really, the bathroom at the McLeod Residence is one of the best things there.

And if you’re longing desperately to wipe your ass, buy “ShitBeGone!” by Brooklyn artist Jed Ela. I highly encourage you to go to the McLeod Residence and check out Jed Ela’s statement on this matter by clicking here.
