The Universe creates equilibrium, fractals of the source, we are deliberate. Each one of us possesses the power to be true to our nature and to design our lives. Artists, Creators remind us of this ability and although such things are not exclusive to creative types, they remind us of who we are. Thats why we are drawn to their drawings.

December 11th's event connects us to the source using 4 amazing all star designers to bridge us from this reality to their own. To remind us of who we all are. Amazing Creators on the verge of evolutionary explosions that will vibrate through the cosmos! And you can get your book signed too...these cats have been known to bust out some pretty amazing sketches as well.

This is the forth event of the newly formed Petra Gallerie and your hosts, John Felix and Snakebite have enjoyed the huge success of each night, looking forward to bringing their audience new and exciting content to read, wear or hang on their walls.

Hope to see you there! Drinks on us!"

Even with the lights going out and me having to run a hundred feet of extension cords to get some power, it was fun...good thing I came in my truck with all my equipment. lol, saved us.

John and I feel blessed to have such great support from everyone. It's turning out to be a great platform for us local creator types!

I think the power outage Snakebite refers to was due to the energy of the evening. It was an overload of goodness that caused it to happen. But he did a great job of getting enough lighting to enhance the event even more and create a magical atmosphere.

The highlight of the night was when the crowd had gone and Snakebite bought out a birthday cake for Jose...

...which took Jose and all of us by surprise...

...and that put a fitting end to a very special night.

Thank you one more time brother Snakebite and brother John Felix and sister Petra.
