For the second room of the Trixie Motel went went full force with the theme of "Love" and had a lot of loving helpful hands bring this space to life.
My love of murals of course had to be featured once again but this time we got some extra help from our dear friends Nicholas Scheppard and Jenson Titus who make up the very talented duo known as Very Gay Paint who are not only amazing mural artists but also insanely talented comedians. We also had our good friends over at Mojo Glassworks step in again to create the colorful heart stained glass piece that you see in the bathroom.
Another amazing piece of this room is the original framed artwork by the fabulous drag queen and graphic designer Chorizo May who created art for each room in the motel (so be sure to keep your eye out for it!)
The focal point of this room has to be the hand tufted heart mirror by Tim Eads of Tuft The World that is hanging over the custom heart bed. It brings such a fun element to the room and I am sure it will be a favorite of any guests who stay here.

Eads uses the AI software DALL-E, similar to ChatGPT (they are made by the same company, OpenAI) to type in parameters for an image request. For example, Eads asked for a geometric pattern loosely based on paintings by Bridget Riley, the British artist known in the 1960s for creating optical effects with line patterns.
The software generates many versions of what it thinks Eads is asking for. He chose one of DALL-E’s images, a squared spiral in black. Its imperfectly aligned lines create a slightly dizzying effect.
