I found out a few days ago that I have four pieces accepted into this year’s Seattle Erotic Art Festival (Yay! Does an imaginary happy dance because I’m not the sort of person prone to actually breaking out into happy dances… yes, I’m boring). But yes – so exciting! Here is one of them, “Blush 6.”
And another, “Slumber Party.” …Much more innocent, a simple ink drawing.
Here’s a new piece I’ve been working on for the upcoming RAWartists city semifinalists art show – planning on finishing two more by the 17th. I’m trying some new things here, for one only showing part of her body, another, actually showing her face (still new to this, usually I cover them up with hair), and also throwing in some creepy crawlies peeking out from underneath the flowers.
I’ve dug up many earthworms - not for a long while, but we used to hunt night-crawlers at night, after the rain, with flashlights and slippery fingers.
You can read more about the upcoming RAWartists Award Show here. If you’re in the Seattle area at the time, it’d be awesome to see you there! There will be live music, a magician, short film, hair/makeup/fashion show, photographers and of course – visual artists. You also get the chance to vote in all categories and find out that night who gets to move on to the next round!
Cocktail attire (dress up! Hmm. I think this means I’ll have to brush my hair, or something.)
I just found out that until Saturday the 10th at midnight, every ticket you purchase you also receive a complimentary ticket courtesy of RAW Seattle! Once you have purchased your ticket email the confirmation with the additional names attached. Cool.
So! Here are some photos taken at the Trinity last month for the RAW artists “Radiate” art show, taken by their media crew. To see more photos, you can see the whole set on Flickr, taken by Erik Simkins, here.
Here’s how I set up my little corner: 2D artists weren’t allowed to use nails, screws, tape, or anything to attach their work to the walls, so I snagged a wall with a horizontal pipe running along the ceiling, over which we looped fishing line to hang artwork.
Here N and I look over the space, trying to see if our plan will work.
And, because I love you, I will let you see this video interview of which I am quite embarrassed, not to mention unprepared. At the time I didn’t know getting interviewed was part of the deal. I would have put on a fancy dress and done my hair if I knew (only half kidding)! Anyways, enjoy:
