C&N Footlocker: Trick Your Trunk 2007

Here is an old project I worked on.

A little bit about it;
So this company mailed several artists these awesome trunks. We painted them and then has a contest on which was the best. Even though my design wasn't the winner, I was still proud to be apart of the whole process.

Anyhoo, so now I have this trunk and although I love it, the space in my apartment is just too small. If you are need of some art and a storage unit, email me! I promise to give you a good deal =)!


"From GermBots and Skullies to koi and jellyfish, 179 compliments chaotic paint dripped backgrounds to simplistic black line work. Reflecting the conflict between what goes on in her head versus what goes on in her heart. Armed with the philosophy that art should be accessible to everyone, she has been known to be passionate about sticker trades, mix tapes, the fantastic combination of fishnets and cleats, and the preservation of the noble axolotl. Inspirations include crazy Mexican mom tattoos, catholic iconography, coffee shop drawing sessions with fellow geeks, current loves and tragic heartaches."

Hangar Cafe, Georgetown

Crepes, coffee and more!
For the month of October and some of November, you can see 179's paintings at the wonderful Hangar Cafe.

Here is the Yelp review for this amazing place;

The Hangar Cafe
6261 13th Ave S
Seattle, WA 98108

Hangar Mural on the fence in the front. I remember when I painted this; there was still snow on the ground. There was snow on the grass patch where this mural was painted. My little hands were so cold!

I remember dropping a jar of paint and it shattering on the cement because of the cold. I then got hip and on day 2, painted with gloves on. The old men that drank at Planet Georgetown (RIP) across the street would come out and check up on me.

The owner at the time, Dawn, was super amazing and kept me warm with delicious vanilla soy lattes.

Thanks for stopping by,

Astatine is currently the rarest naturally-occurring element, with less than an ounce contained in the entire Earth's crust.

Lovely. Showing with me will be my favorites Ego, Joey Nix, Solace, Weirdo and Chris Sheridan.
