3D Artbook Signing Party

To launch Tristan Eaton’s 3D Artbook, featuring art by luminaries such as Shepard Fairey, Mark Ryden, Stephen Bliss, Ron English and Dalek, bi-coastal celebrations were hosted by Lonsdale Productions in conjunction with NY based creative representation agency B&A.

Two ten feet high Gibson Les Paul model guitars, customized by Eaton and Fairey, welcomed guests at the entrance of Bar Marmont, as part of The Maxamillian Gallery’s “Guitar Town on Sunset Strip” series, a public art project launched in August 2010 featuring the World’s foremost street artists. Over 250 decadent, beautiful art lovers crammed into the infamous space, partying hard and lining up to meet superstar artists Tristan Eaton, Gary Baseman, Shepard Fairey and James Jean, who signed, wrote personal messages and drew all over the complimentary books.

Elegantly packaged Solsticio Wines and Chivas helped the party go with a swing, with cocktails entitled “Andre the Ginger Giant” and “Pineapple Thunder Puppy”, alluding to Fairey’s iconic OBEY hero and Eaton’s agency Thunderdog Studios.
