Manzanilta by OneSevenNine 2007

Manzanilta_by_OneSevenNine, originally uploaded by marinvee.

It's a wonder seeing old work and the progression of a style. It is especially interesting when it is yourself you are observing...

This picture was apart of a series of paintings I did with Germbots, Skulls and hotdogs. It was a mixture of Catholic iconography, playfulness, animal folklore... Ideas which I feel in present work are more refined. I was really feeling this method of well ink pen and gouache, which as you know I still use. This is a little ole thing, say 5x7 or 4x6? on watercolor paper. This makes me want to revisit this particular style and period with the new things I have learned.

I am happy to see this.
Have a Happy Holiday!

I really want to see this Wakuda in person. This is stunning.

Art Jam 2010 :: Georgetown

Art Jam 2010, originally uploaded by OneSevenNine.
Here are a few images I captured with the trusty iphone.

The basic set up;
there is a rotating roster of artists who when finished are switched out with another artist.

The finished piece is then walked through the bar to a table in the back where you can take an up close look and purchase.

Everything is under $50; pretty amazing! This is excellent if you are trying to add to your art collection on a limited budget.

I had a blast! There are tons of artsy, fancy and fun people partying!

Here are images of the whole night on Facebook:: ART JAM 5

Neko Demon :: Ukiyo-E

Illustration time!
So I am leaving to St. Louis today.
Don't worry, I will post pics of awesome things I find on my adventures.

I am taking this opportunity amongst business meetings and such to get some quality drawing and sketching time in. Doing these illustrations are really important to me and I like to zone out.

I do these as commissions as well, so if you have a tattoo idea, an animal you love or just looking for something awesome to give someone, please give me a buzz!

I hope all is well!

Femme Fatale Seattle 2010

I loved this show!

Thank you so much to my model and to the awesome women who performed!
I had a blast and after I relaxed with my little extra dirty 2-olive'd martini like a good egg.
I enjoyed talking to Julie Luke who also live painted at the event.
