The NEW Inkyboy Gallery!


This is it, folks--the new build!

The main building itself was built by Eladrienne Laval, who also serves as Curator to the Inkyboy Gallery. The design of the building is loosely based on Chicago's Carson Pirie Scott building, which was designed by Louis Sullivan. The texture of the fa├žade and cornice is taken from the Santa Fe building, also of Chicago. I felt that the Windy City's turn-of-the-century architecture complimented the buildings of Regency perfectly.

While you're here, be sure to turn on your radio. The station is WFMT, Chicago's main classical station.

The gallery features an ever-changing array of art styles. My illustrations are from my real-life vocation as a freelance illustrator. You can find more of my work at www.inkyboy.com. You also might find portraits of Caledonians, SL snaps, and RL photos. Faeriographs were something I came up with on a fluke, but they seem to be popular.

On the top of the glass tower at the entrance you will find the distinctive Inkyboy octopus balloon built by my favorite pixie Kandace Commons!

Coming in the spring--a cafe on the back patio and dancing in the rooftop garden!

Come to Caledon Regency. You'll be able to see the sign from the telehub. Hope to see you soon!

It really is a beautiful building (and I'm not just saying that because I built it). It's also a nice place to sit and sip tea or cocoa while chatting with friends.
