Oh my goodness, I am in love. San Franciscan artist Aubrey Learner has an MFA in fine art and a BS in biology, and the combined loves mashup to create something truly stunning:
watercolor on paper 23×38 inches
watercolor on paper 17.75×30.25
ink, graphite on paper 36″x24″
milk and honey
watercolor on paper 33×41 inches
Acrylic and ink on paper 48.75×45.25 inches
Her intricate drawings include insects, silk, candy, pins, lace and parasites. They arouse both disgust and desire; smaller perhaps disturbing bits making up a beautiful, larger whole. More images in her online portfolio, here. Ugh, she is so good!!

Momo keeping me company in the back of my chairMore shrinky-dink action!The wildflowers growing on our porchGot these in the mail a couple of days ago – Lumi Inkodye – sunlight-activated permanent dye, which can be used on cotton, silk or wood. My first experiment was rushed and careless, so I’ll let you know when I come out with a successful development! Any case, very cool stuff.
All of my spare time is spent neck-deep in this novel.
Wow, busy weekend! The Seattle Erotic Art Festival opened this Friday, coinciding with the Fremont Fair. I’d never been before, so this was also the first time I witness the nude bicyclists that are a traditional part of the parade.
Both of my pieces at the festival sold the first day – thank you so, so much, my two buyers! I love you!!

Kevin and I were also available to take loss-of-virginity stories. SEAF runs all the way till next Sunday the 24th, so you still have lots of time to come check it out – tons of awesome artwork: 2D, 3D, interactive, film, spoken-word, performance and panels. Definitely try to make it out Friday and/or Saturday night. We will be there.

If you live in the area and have never been, do consider visiting the festival! It’s really something. Now in it’s 10th year, you’d never have guessed at how small it was starting out. It’s run by an awesome collection of passionate, hard-working people, and I feel really lucky to be a part of it.
