I am very glad today to welcome Carolyn on the blog not only because it is a great opportunity to a little bit of feminity in the poster world, but also because she is not exactly what you may expect from a poster artist. Indeed, no question of 4 or 5 colors maximum in her work, as she is not silkscreening her posters, she can use as many colors as she wants, and, believe me, and you will see by yourself below, her artwork is a true explosion of colors ! In front of such stunning pictures, you may feel voiceless, this is the reason why I prefer not to say much and let you discover by yourself !
I'm listening to a mix of mostly everything except for progressive jazz, I turn on my ipod and hit spin. Yesterday, I started the day with The Lazy Song, was in the mood to listen to a mix I have with: Moonalice, Flogging Molly, Amy Winehouse, Govt. Mule, Willie Nelson, Ratdog, I like bands like The Orb for those special occasions.
Can you tell us more about yourself, who are you, where are you from, what do you do?
When did you start drawing? When I was six, I did a painting of a record player, perspective was remarkably ok. I think I was psychically tuning in on the melody of my future. I drew a lot when I was younger, probably because my father was an artist, a painter. I grew up in Denver and came to San Francisco in December of 1983, I worked for Mountain Bell at the time, I knew someone on the round table during divestiture, so I got them to transfer me to San Francisco to work for AT&T, they put me up in a hotel for 6 months with paid expenses in Pacific Heights, an expensive neighborhood. I quit AT&T the day of my 5 year anniversary, after they'd sent me to Academy of Art in San Francisco, they told me I'd need outside experience to transfer into their graphics department.
