We met Lawrence a year and half ago.  He came out with us one night because we shared a mutual friend.  The evening was hazy… we hit up Gallery 1988, Poleng Lounge (or at least somewhere near there or was it Madrone?) and a couple of other places.  He gave us a mini book that showcased his art.  He told us about how his coffee mug made a stain on one of his papers and he started drawing around it and making the stain a focal point in his painting.  Since that night, Lawrence, originally from Chicago, is a regular on the local San Francisco art scene.  His work has been showcased in Gallery 1988, Lower Haters, Given, and of course, 1:AM gallery.

For our anniversary show, Lawrence transformed his signature character’s face to be a skull-like.  He created a story about domination in his 3 paintings.  Here is a look at his work:

"Judgement" - Almost everyone has joined but there is one that questions the whole operation
