New York City, Downtown Los Angeles

Last Thursday we had a pair of parties — one for each coast — celebrating bustling group shows in both the Gallery at Ace Hotel New York and Segovia Hall at Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles.

Imagine building a fort with Isaac

“Isaac I swear if you knock this whole fort down I will get Derek to kill you” You threatened Isaac as he tried to throw the final blanket on the fort. With the angle he was at it was almost guaranteed that the whole fort would collapse.
“Y/N, I am a professional fort maker, I can do this. It hurts to know how little you believe in me.” Isaac teased.
He then threw the blanket on to the fort. the blanket knocked over a poorly placed pillow, which started the downfall of the fort.
“ISAAC!” You screamed and began chasing Isaac throughout the house. “I’M GOING TO KILL YOU!” It was all in a teasing manner of course, because later you both got tired and fell to the ground beside the fallen fort, you were then laughing and joking around the rest of the night.
