Just had a brief but enjoyable stay in beautiful Clemson, South Carolina, where I was creating an anamorphic 3D street painting for Clemson Live, a student run organization at Clemson University, responsible for campus events and activities.

Janice Garrett & Dancers were featured along with The Del Sol Quartet, both from the Bay Area.
