Kenny Scharf's Mural on Bowery and Houston in New York

The other day, I brought you world exclusive footage of Kenny Scharf making a mural on Bowery and Houston in New York.  The mural has been completed and it looks so amazing!  I am hoping it won’t be destroyed as the last several murals have been that have been made in this location.  Enjoy it while it lasts!

I was so excited the other day when I was at a function and I saw actor Frank Whaley.  He’s in one of my favorite movies of all time, “Swimming With Sharks,” and I am so happy to report that he’s a very nice guy.  I’m sure he gets that all the time, so I didn’t say it to him, but if you are reading this Frank, I think you rule!  Thanks again!
