Derek Erdman has been tracing projections of images onto wood with acrylic paint for 11 years.

“I went to seven different public schools before graduating from high school near Cleveland, Ohio. A strong but misguided work ethic of the rusting Midwest rubbed off on me, and I’m now in constant need to be doing something or face the overwhelming depression of inactivity, which is usually quelled by TV + bed. I live with my wife and a guinea pig a block away from a Safeway where I shop twice a day. I’m a painter, telephone rapper, gallery owner, writer and illustrator at the Stranger and the temporary secretary at Sub Pop Records. I’ve sold over 4,500 paintings since I began painting. I went to college for English but dropped out after two years, without obtaining a degree.”

Nikki Burch loves to draw – illustration work and comics, generally.

“I utilize a range of materials, most often inks and paint, and computer when the necessary evils of modern illustration work call for it. I received my art training from pausing cartoons on VHS and attempting to recreate them on paper, as a child. I then sold the resulting bootleg Disney art to my classmates for 25 cents a page. So this is where I received my business training as well. I am working on my first-ever published comic book for Hic & Hoc Publications and it will be coming out in mid-2013.”

“I work in accounting in a corporate law firm, though I’m not sure why, or how I even got the job. I love Seattle with all my heart and it is where I have lived for the entirety of my adult life, but some day I will move. Then I will come back. I draw something every single day and will do so until my hands wither and gnarl, or I go blind.”

Brittany Kusa is an illustration artist living in Seattle, WA. She has kept a sketchbook since she was ten. She is originally from Kalamazoo, MI, where she was raised by a hamburger, who taught her most of what she knows about art. The rest comes from hardly working, “dedication”, and trying to draw all of the time.
