According to the bio on Christopher Ian Macfarlane's blog page, crapbychris.com, the young
artist is just "a dude who likes to make art." Haunted Mirror Forrest marks Macfarlane's debut exhibition and is a culmination of a lifetime spent mastering his craft. Suede Dudes, Pocket of Lollipops, Kenny Millions, and many more bands will be providing the musical delight.
