Here is my sticker design for the organization. Everything that is Grey is clear. The butterfly is supposed to look like it is breaking out of the white box that is trying to contain it. Hopefully it is effective! These ladies are super awesome. Please, please read up on these links! I will be live painting for an All-Girl skate jam of theirs in December and will definitely keep you posted. Thanks everyone! Angelina

This definitely was an overwhelming show! All these big names and little old me. I was super excited to be apart of the show though. Thanks my Seattle familia who came out to support (and those who made this happen). Cheers! Angelina
Seattle /// Damion Hayes BLVD is proud to present “Fanatic” a group show that explores the enthusiasm expressed in “Fan” art. The artists participating in this show were given the task of creating art that is in tribute to something that they are truly a fan of. It did not matter whether it was related to entertainment, though much of it is, or cultural pursuits but had to be straight from the heart. BLVD Gallery is fanatic about the vibrant talent here in Seattle so most of the artists involved are from the area and are showing with us for the first time. Intermixed with them are some veteranos like Pars and Ego, as well as a surprise installation from longtime gallery fixtures Zeta Mek. BLVD Gallery 2316 2nd Ave Seattle Wa 98121 t. 206.448.8767 www.blvdart.com
Featuring work by - Pars, Ego, OneSevenNine, Julio Guerrero, Aloha Terrorists, Drewad Weirdo, Jefferey Taylor, Zeta Mek, Miguel “Wero” Cuevas, Ben Adams I chose to do a Mogwai being terrorized by a Gremlin. When I was little I totally thought of myself as a Mogwai. Now being older and having a good time in life, I am definitely a Gremlin! Be sure to check out the show, everyone really did good!
