Our friend Jeremy Pelley of OMFGCo gathered a bunch of polaroids from a dark drawer in his house long ago and wheatpasted them to a wall in room 401 at Ace Hotel Portland. And there they remain.

Graphic designer and custom chalk letterer Dana Tanamachi just finished this mural on a wall in Ace Hotel New York room 1021. She was inspired by vintage playbills from the Victorian era, and included a lyric from her favorite musical, “Thoroughly Modern Millie”. Hats off to you, Dana.



Congratulations to Timothy Goodman, a talented fellow introduced to us by the Art Director’s Club — his mural in room 910 at Ace Hotel New York was given a full spread in the most recent issue of Communication Arts Illustration Annual. Hats off!

Art in room 402 at Ace Hotel New York by our resident thief of hearts, Johnne Eschleman. In his own words:

A version of the Thieves Family “Husband and Wife” tattoo. the acronym on the left signifies “Prisoner of the Zone”. The acronym on the right (spelling of the Russian word for “bread”) signifies “I Shall Preserve My Only Love.” I changed the image from the original book version, but here’s the book title in case we should include with photo on the blog: Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopedaedia Volume Two. Okay, that’s it.

Thanks, Johnne. See you soon.

ADC is hosting their first big Young Guns party of the season tonight, to celebrate their call for entries to ADC Young Guns 9. Bloodwrestling, live music and who knows what else will shake down.
