Dancing Shoes: Custom Paint

Jailbird Rock!

These I did for a friend who was just released from the slammer! He is near and dear and so I decided to do a comic-style short story with these and incorporate his life. The banner ended up reading "A Setback is a Set-up for a Comeback!" Very witty of him. There is a skateboard with hotrod flames flying through a lightning storm. A padlock freeing a laughing jailbird and a calavera. I am proud.

These I used the Molotow High Solid Markers I received from Art Primo. Check the video demo I did for them on their Youtube Channel;

Dancing Shoes: Custom Paint

Along with acrylic paint I applied with a paintbrush, I was able to get the details I needed. This was extremely fun and I had a good time doing this. Little egg was really interested in this project so I hope I can get her to make her own custom pair! How cool would that be?

Anyhoo, I am excited to give these to him for the holidays. I hope everyone has a safe one as well, cheers!

Me thinks I will re-release this next year. It's a tiny zine I used to carry along on outta' state adventures. I would trade it for various things while out and about. These are fun ways to strike up a conversation, trade for a coffee or beer or leave a lasting impression on someone you would like to impress =)

This is the newest addition to Seattle!
I started at 9am and just worked my little butt off till it was done. Thank you all that came out and brought me snacks =)

"Residents in the area, and those passing by approve of the mural, and appreciate the cheery colors. Kids particularly have taken to the mural, enjoying the "fluffy pillows" on the wall. "

New Painting, a photo by OneSevenNine on Flickr.

Fish face!

This the newest painting I nerded out to the other night. I sanded the edges and rounded the wood corners. I also weathered the overall look by sanding parts of the background and painting itself. I really like the aesthetic of this technique, we shall see where it takes me!

I have several more pieces of wood this size that I have loose plans for. Currently I am excited about getting my space a little more organized and put together.

Thank you for stopping by and cheers from my home on the beach!

Progress but more like making a mess...

It's true.
I am having the hardest time focusing on this painting. I am not sure why, but I want to be done with it. Perhaps I should focus on other projects? Or perhaps feeling unsure on this painting is leading me to NOT be able to move to other projects. I have to figure out what my mental block is before I progress. One wonders...

I have been invited to speak at the UW in Bothell again. This was a great honor for me to do this last year and I look forward to scheduling another lecture. I will have to look over the past year's accomplishments and pick which I will highlight.

Okay, I hope this blog finds you well. I am waiting on the 35th skate decks to come in. This I am very excited about! Stay tuned for details!

I had a job where I had to go out to the Microsoft campus last year.. or was it the year before? That place is a wonderland... I think it was the year before since I was living in the CD and not by the beach.

In any case, it was super fun. There were waffles and coffee and I live painted to live music. And all before 9am in the morning!

This is what I painted, here is my little face content with custom waffles and coffee.

Breakfast of champions! It is supposed to be 2011 starting with the rabbit, but I got a little crazy and HAD to add the star and Germbot.

Few and Far Oakland 2011
This is a bear-dog. He was great. He watched me paint for a few hours. What a good ole' dog.

Few and Far Oakland 2011
Here is my proton of the Paintbrush section of the wall. I painted with 2 other really talented ladies and then went to help on the larger part when I was finished. Again I had to paint on a ladder and 2 stacked milk crates. Yes, I know, I am very short.

Here is the link to the past blog where Ksera, TooFly and Reds were interviewed and the official Flier;

Meme, you are amazing for organizing this event and Ksera, thank you for inviting me down for laughs and good times! I hope to paint with the rest of your ladies in the future, take care!
