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.
15" x 20" ballpoint pen, what what!? Cascadia sky cat. The arrows were to be people fighting eachother since there's so much fighting for minds nowadays. With eachother over nothing, over racism, over structural issues of the country, with white supremacists trying to co-opt the Cascadia movement. But I opted for the easy arrow. Cheapskate!
For some reason this is really dark and fuzzy. Here it is. Colored pencil and I believe it's 15"x 20"
Apologies for the lack of updates, been busy with many things. Including a new series which is TOTALLY different than anything I've done, so it will be interesting to see the finished product. The work will be shown Nov 8th and I'll be selling prints. Keep posted for deets! The series is called "Whiteness"
"Growth", 36"×24", colored pencil on cardboard. This was an experiment using cardboard because it's much cheaper than illustration board and the colors really pop if you keep some of the cardboard color. Covering the entire board I think mutes the colors overall. Well here it is!
On an unrelated related note, I take commissions! Want a portrait with trees coming out of your eyes, mushrooms, hands, regular ol eyeballs? Let's talk, send me a message!
Hello! I'm Cascadian colored pencil artist extraodinaire.
