Day 7: Berkeley hosts the Sparks "Ignite What's Next" art tour



One week into the tour and counting, the artists dig into their reserves to pull off another successful day of painting. Day seven of the Sparks "Ignite What's Next" art tour took Saber, Dave Choe and Retna to the grand opening of the Upper Playground Berkeley store on Telegraph Ave. The guys signed the usual books and shirts but switched things up a bit for several willing ladies who wanted Saber to sign their stomachs. We wonder how long that will take to wash off? From there, it was on to the evening event held at the Radio bar in Oakland. The tour heads to San Jose for its last Bay Area stop Sunday, September 16th for a day event at Workmens on Eastridge Loop that starts at 3pm.
