AMDEF Model Painting

Model Painting, originally uploaded by OneSevenNine.
This is going to be great!
We are actually painting not at the Crocodile, but The Underground a few blocks away in conjunction with this event.
I really like painting on models... The last time I did this I did feathers around my model's body. I think this time I will be doing something similar but with wispy hair and fox faces.

Here is an image of a little bit of what I was doing at the Femme Fatale last year. This wrapped all around her torso down to her legs. You can see more images in the Artsy Fartsy Shows on the Flickr.

Pretty hype to be painting with Solace and Burn and of course the Artifakt guys.

Also! Ana Bender will be performing as well! So get your butt there if you know what's good for you! Here is a link to her Facebook Page;

See you soon!

Cinco De Mayo Event:: Blogged on a Blog

Yes! You are big time when you are blogged on another blog!
Here is what the West Seattle Blog had to say about the event coming up tomorrow;

6:30. The kids are in a sugar coma, the politico types are home writing letters to their local op-ed columns, and the seedy underbelly of South Park emerges. That’s right… Artists! They confront the two evils that strike fear in the psyche of every artist: A deadline, and a live audience! Five brave souls will pit their skills against each other and the clock to create works of art that must be completed within 1 Hour. While they are working, they will be in full view of the audience, and the audience gets to bid silently on the works while they are in process. All proceeds from the silent auction will go to support Arts & Cultural experiences for the teens at the South Park Community Center. All bids must be in by 7:30! *As a side note: All five artists will be starting with the same canvas… doors reclaimed from the historical “Witches Hat House” on 7th Ave S.

The pressure is on! Come watch me sweat it out and paint something people are going to want to buy for a very excellent cause!

For more on the West Seattle Blog visit;

And I hope to see you soon!

Cinco De Mayo:: Live Painting Event

I am live painting this Thursday for Cinco de Mayo in South Park! Here is the basic premise of the show;
Five artists will transform doors salvaged from the historic Witch Hat House into works of art. In one hour you’ll see a plain white door change from a cocoon into a freaking beeyootiful butterfly.
 And then, you’ll even be able to bid on that butterfly! That’s right. The art will be available to the highest (silent) bidder when the doors are complete.  Proceeds from the auction will go to art events and field trips for our South Park Teen Program.

This is going to be so much fun! Here is the line-up;
These are all amazing artists and we will definitely entertain you for the evening. There will be pizza and sunshine; that makes for a very happy me. Check the link below for more details;


Thanks and I hope to see you soon!

Double Vision, the results are in!

Artist I am painting:: Pars
Artist who is painting me:: NKO

A pair of excellent eggs!

The rest of the line-up is listed at the end of the video, but this show is going to be so tight. I am really looking forward to seeing what everyone creates (including my pair).

I did have to switch the painting I originally did for another one I worked on all night Sunday at. it was way too abstract (which might have been a little too easy for NKO...) I just want a little more time with it to perfect whatever epiphany I am coming close to.

Be good!
