I was lucky enough to be invited by my friends at l'etoile magazine and Digital Crush Photography to be included - along with a venerable who's who in Minneapolis art, fashion, and eccentrics - in l'etoile's promotional photo shoot for the annual Art-A-Whirl this coming May. While the finale image is yet to be revealed, le'toile's What's What editor and Digital Crush proprietress Kate Iverson sent me a preview of some of the images taken that night at the studio of artists Eric Inkala, Drew Peterson and Isaac Arvold. Art-A-Whirl 2009 is set for May 15-17 to happen at various locations in Northeast Minneapolis. See the final image (not pictured here) in l'etoile's ad in the Art-A-Whirl 2009 catalog and artist directory, coming soon.
