On the back it reads;

This is a design I did for a summer class the wonderful Lulu and Rahwa at Hidmo spearheaded this past summer. I taught a logo class to a handful of future leaders and community builders. From there, they silk-screened the designs they created on shirts for themselves at the wonderful Vera Project.

I am very fortunate to be apart of the Hidmo Community.

Update on Desmadre Show 2009

Here is an article of my 2009 Summer Show at Vermilion Gallery;
Fresh Latino Perspectives in America

Here is an exert from Kaetlyn Cordingley blog and article she wrote.

"Artist Angelina Villalobos, who signs her paintings as 179, used vibrant colors and pottery-inspired details in her pieces. Her passion for folklore was evident in her whimsical depictions of animals. In her most recent painting, “Conejo” (which means rabbit), buggy bunny eyes pop from the center of the canvas as the abstract form of a rabbit surrounds them.
“I love old stories in which animals play tricks on people,” said Villalobos, who has described herself as a combination of “country Mex and city Mex.""

Family and Folklore in New Latino Art Show
I remember talking to her, I was a bit nervous and I never know what to say when asked about my art. It was lovely talking to her and I thank her for this wonderful article she wrote on this very successful show.

I would recommend reading the rest of the article since there are interesting and great insightful views on Latino Art in the modern age.

If you would like a reminder of the show, here is the link to my interview with the fine people of Desmadre Arte;

I hope this entry finds you all well,

Awesome Internets!

Have you ever searched your name in google?

These are examples of what pops up when I search in Google Images under; Angel179
This is a fun exercise when you are idling by a computer with internet access...

The first image was of this past Comic Con in San Diego. Pocket Full of Monsters had an awesome show at the Beauty Bar where we live painted. See there? Paint all over my hands? Typical.

This second image is of a gallery showing I had in Portland several years back. I did small, cute and affordable pieces for the holiday. This show I unfortunately did not make the trip, but from the pictures I saw online, it looked spectacular.

This final one is of a live painting I did here in Seattle with Augie. You can check his amazing artwork on his blog which is linked to My Inspirations. This event was amazing. I'll get proper links in here when I get the chance. Thanks Augie!

Anyhoo, thanks again for all your support, I am off snowboarding right now with a bunch of amazing future leaders of America with the Chill Program, I'll link them as well when I get a few minutes.
