Once again, I'll be live painting at this year's Psychedelic Shindig at the Blue Moon, April 6. I'm super excited for this show, it should be a visual and audial(?) treat!
I've finally figured out a speed art style I'll be debuting at this show. . . which means. . . a cool, completed piece of art at the end of the show! I've really struggled doing live art since I'm not a painter and the colored pencil process is so long and mundane. But I think I've figured it out.
I did the poster to the left here. I've started putting more effort into details of poster work. I think I'll put together a poster progression post. I saw a poster I did a couple years back and was a bit surprised at how rough it was, and I was so proud of it at the time.
It is my now-stated goal to post more! The art shows haven't stopped, art is always being created but I seem to have had a tech barrier. But! I now have a laptop, and a smartphone.
Hello fellow art enthusiasts! I have returned from the depths of technological void. My work is currently up at the Greenlake Chocolati,
7810 E Greenlake Dr. N
Seattle, WA, Cascadia 98103
Fill up yer mug and take a stroll around Greenlake, it's always beautiful and relaxing.
I have 20 pieces up at Cafe Allegro for the month of July, check 'em out!
4214 University Way NE
Seattle, WA 98105
Next month I'll be showing at Ok Hotel for August Artwalk!
Well it's been awhile. Hello! Things are always afoot but I've been doing a terrible job keeping my website up to date. Apologies interweb users! Here's some past, present, and upcoming event deets:
A big reason I haven't been updating is I've been focused on helping organize this amazing arts and action festival, Cascadia Convergence. The annual gathering and strategy planning of the bioregional movement. I did the above poster and you can find more info and sign up here!
Oh hey, look at this! Colored pencil poster I did for an upcoming event on April 7th I'll be live painting at. Yay! This will actually be a pretty amazing show, it's a great line up and YOU SHOULD WEAR YOUR MOST PSYCHEDELIC OUTFIT YOU COULD POSSIBLY CREATE! Ok now that's out of the way, here's the players:
Filthy Femcorps: All female, all bad-ass, marching band.
Sunflower Sutra: A psychedelic world wonder.
Fruit Juice: A glittery good time.
I'll be live painting during Sunflower Sutra's set. Maybe I'll bring some vegan tasty goods, maybe you will, who knows! This is actually my birthday shindig, I haven't seen you in a while or maybe ever- so you really should come. . . IN YOUR PSYCHEDELIC BEST! ;)
I have pieces up at Horizon Books this month. It should have been the work of the amazingly talented Rani Laik, but his car broke down in the freeway a bit out of town and was unable to make it. So next month you can catch his work! This was the first time Horizon Books participated in the Capitol Hill artwalk. We had music, poetry, spoken word, and art! It went pretty well. Check out the space, it's next to neumos down the ramp at 1423 10th Ave.
I actually work at the bookstore, so feel free to pop in and say hello, peruse the books. Postcards, prints, and originals are on sale here. Maybe I'll be seeing you around!
Things have been happening, I've been terrible at updating. I do have an instagram if you're into that sort of thing, @erinfox24 be me. Top photo is from the Axis show- SO BEAUTIFUL and cool how 3 very different types of art fit so well together (photo NOT taken by me). Did some live painting at the Chinatown Christmas Party Part 1. I've also been playing around with pens as seen below.

This was a really fun start, a doodle music jam. Surprised I've never done it before, it's the best! 32" x 44" on thick paper. I used art sticks for the most part which enabled me to get it done in 4 days, yeowza. Albeit with a blister on my thumb. Then I went over the entire thing with regular pencils which took a good 4 hours.
Because this was a collaboration with the very talented Jose Simonet you should check out some of his tunes through the band, Sunflower Sutra. Good stuff!
This was from a small sketch I did a month or so ago that I found hilarious. i would look at it and laugh. With a stroke of luck, my housemate gave me some extra large thick paper from his work that was going to be junked. So of course, I had to do a giant version of the sketch.
It's really influenced by where I'm at, this drawing would never have happened if I didn't live here. That's neat to think about and appreciate even more this wonderful space I call home. This colored pencil drawing was actually all done with art sticks, basically just blocks of color instead of in pencil form. I never use them since they're so clunky. So the edges are a bit rough, no detail, no blending but it works as it is and I probably love it too much.
Hello! I'm Cascadian colored pencil artist extraodinaire.
