Chris is also a genius with finding the humor in anything. He makes life fun because he finds fun in life. Chris is also like a younger brother. (He's even the same age as my brother, Eric.) We have always interacted like siblings who were fond of each other. I love him. He's my friend.
And this bad boy to the left is what he painted for me recently. It will soon reside in my office -- once said office is finally finished. (I don't want it to get construction dust on it. It's too awesome to risk being hurt.) Now, many of the design blogs that I read would probably shudder at the idea of hanging a black velvet painting anywhere outside of a bar. I have more of a sense of humor about my space than that. I like my house to be lovely. I also like it to be fun. Besides, have you looked at that picture? It's freaking amazing.
Chris is also on Etsy, under his artiste nom de plume, Christiano Enrique. He just put some new art up for sale. It's a pop culture extravaganza. So if you want something to make you smile whenever your gaze happens upon it, get yourself over to his shop and purchase yourself a BVP.
