byline on Josef Valentino’s site

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I met Josef Valentino a few days ago in London. He was nice enough to organize a ticket for me for the Lucian Freud exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery but I had appointments and could not make it. I went to send him a message today and loved his byline: 

"Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken."

"I'm living the 21st century doin' something mean to it"

Looking forward to his art project….more news on that later.
