“Alice Alpacacorn” a.k.a. “Soho House Chicago Corner 2”🌈🦄; A bunch of people who stopped by asked me what my inspiration for this was and like most of my work, it references my childhood. If you swipe to the last photo you’ll see me from the year 1976 on my banana mobile… Thanks again to @sohohousechicago and @wearecareful for this opportunity. Shoutout also to @ashleylauren.white from @threadless for the sweet ‘work in progress’ photos. Reminder that these corners will only be around thru November then they’re gone forever! Please swing by if you get a chance. Also, if any of you are looking for indoor mural work this winter season, please send me a DM to get it going. Thanks!
