Wonderful Vernon Ah Kee in his “rented house” studio

Watch a fantastic short film by silver screen pictures about Vernon and his studio. If I was doing this project, I would CHOOSE Vernon. Not only a space to draw for him…a place to cook, eat, be with his family. Large spaces…light and dark. much needed. Collections and libraries of material. What might he need and what might he want in his wildest dreams. I could even write and ask him! I LOVE him.
