Last night after John Law’s book release event at City Lights Bookstore in North Beach, a bunch of us went over to Spec’s Twelve Adler Museum Cafe, one of my favorite bars in the city. It’s an amazing, historic little place full of all kinds of oddities.

Above our our table was a curious painting of Sonia XIXLXIV. Violet Blue was sitting next to me and I started to notice an uncanny resemblance between the two, it almost seemed as if the ghost of Sonia was keeping an eye on her. I shot of photo of Violet in a similar pose as Sonia, with Katy Bell providing some art direction assistance. I left my SD card at home, so the only camera I could use was my iPhone and it actually came out pretty well.

UPDATE: Here’s Abie in a bunny suit paying homage to the photo of Violet and Sonia.
