St. Patrick’s Day is probably my least favorite holiday for all the reasons that are obvious. Luckily yesterday was a good time despite attempts by drunk morons in all green.
I spent most of yesterday working for the Robert Duvall film Wild Horses. It was pretty good timing since I didn’t have anything else going on yesterday. I shot the red carpet for them and shot the after party which was a lot of fun. Robert Duvall and Josh Hartnett took photos with nearly every single person there and there were a ton of cowboys there which was pretty amazing. Matthew Mcconaughey’s brother Rooster was the star of the party though and is a pretty hilarious dude.
After that I moved all my stuff across Austin so I could check into the Sailor Jerry house. They are doing a pop up art gallery featuring original art from Normal “Sailor Jerry” Collins. It opens tomorrow but I get to go over there in a bit and I am excited to check it out. Check out the flyer below for details.
My friend Erica then picked me up from the SJ house and we got some tacos and caught up. She is pretty much my favorite person to photograph of all time and honestly one of my favorite people to hang out with and it sucks that I haven’t seen her in years. Fortunately she moved to Austin so I get to take photo of her face again.
We also saw Hello, My Name is Dorris which was great but then I had to get her to bring me back to the Sailor Jerry House to write captions for 84 photos for my 2015 “Famous Faces of SXSW” gallery on the Village Voice and LA Weekly. I also noticed my SXSW Gaming Convention photos are up too so check out both galleries!
And now here are a few highlights from yesterday plus the Sailor Jerry Gallery flyer…
