Mr Brainwash is on fire. His solo art show opens in just two weeks, and he's been pasting and painting his icons all over LA.

Check his website for details and updates at www.artshow2008.com. He will also be giving away 200 signed prints to people who attend. That's a hell of a lot better than the usual plastic glass of Charles Shaw.

This Billie Holiday painting off the north side of Melrose east of Fairfax is excellent. More after the jump.

If you've ever wanted to meet the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld or the guy who played Michelangelo in the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, chances are, as you wander the Autograph Area, you'll be able to connect with someone you didn't even realize you were waiting your whole life to meet!
