And though they are not connected, the corporate offices are essentially right above the retail space. This sweet neon light is in the window of the corporate office.
There were a ton of people at the party and I got to meet a couple other artists from the show and from the area and was very impressed with their work. You should look up
And I talked to Mind of the Masons who was not in this show but has shown at all the KR stores so his work is awesome too.
Kevin Gosselins original Dead Kozik bust is on display at the store as well. It was up high, but it is sweet!!!
It was a pretty great night, free drinks, music, talking to a bunch of different people about art and toys, what more could someone ask for.
The next day was Sat and Amanda and I basically had the day free and we decided to do a little hiking and went to the Eldorado Canyon State Park. There wet crazy rock facings where there were a ton of people rock climbing. I use to do alot of climbing but NOTHING like this. They were so high up you could barely see them. The water was beautiful, the sun was shining, it was a great morning.
And then we drove to the Flatirons, but we were too tired to get much closer than this. The Flatirons are those huge angled slabs.
And then one of the coolest things that we did was after hiking we went back to the Pearl St Mall, ate some deep dish pizza, drank some more beers, and after she made a few phone calls, the KR manager Ana was given permission to give us a tour of the Kidrobot corporate office while they were closed. It's like a toy nerd paradise. Toys on every single desk, great artwork from many of the artists they work with, all kinds of fun stuff and just seeing the work environment was fantastic. Amanda and I are very grateful to be given the opportunity to see all that so thank you Ana! And of course we did not take any pictures... some things are meant for the imagination.
