Flauntleroi

It is no secret that the Seattle Erotic Art Festival (SEAF) is my favorite event of the season. Not only is there fantastic art, but there are performances and readings, live drawing sessions and interactive stations, tours and sensory delights. SEAF transports you to another realm where everything is beautiful, everyone is accepted, and every sense is piqued.

I am proud to say that I volunteer my time and efforts as a designer to the layout and creation of the SEAF catalog for the past 4 years. I am honored to have my art accepted by the SEAF jury for the past 5 years, and for each of those years, my art has sold and I have heard how happy my art has made its new patron and those that viewed it at the show. But this year has been extra special. This year, my art inspired someone else to create a piece of art of their own.

I arrived Friday night and promptly ran into an old friend who was also giving tours. He told me that a member of one of his earlier tours had written a poem based on their impressions of Flauntleroi! Though he tried to get the two of us together to meet, it didn’t end up happening. BUT! He did connect us online. I have chatted with the author, Zoe Brook, and we both shared our enthusiasm for the experience of creating art in impromptu (and at the time, anonymous) collaboration, and she has allowed me to post the poem she wrote here for all of my followers to read and experience.

I am deeply honored and flattered to present to you Zoe Brook’s poem:

Confidence Talks. 4/27/18.
By Zoe Brook.
In response to Flauntleroi.

When you meet their eyes straight on
when your shoulders thrown back without constant maintenance
that little smile in the corners of your mouth
the steps you take that float on air
laughter that rings around you freely
light shining off your hair
sparking in your eyes
that’s confidence talks
you speak into confidence
until confidence speaks into you
no matter which is this moment
in this moment
you
are incredibly sexy.

Thank you, Zoe, for seeing the celebration of confidence in my art. Thank you more, for reveling in your own inspiration and creating more art from mine. Finally, and most importantly, thank you for sharing your art with me.

Deviant Femme Tarot at Club Privata in May!

I am happy to announce that I will be showing a series of watercolors depicting deviant femmes in the first 11 cards of the Major Arcana tarot deck at Club Privata in Portland, Oregon for the month of May! (whew!) Here is the show write up:
Deviant Femme Tarot
After a long absence, Hooligan Lili is back with a new project to share with you. Deviant Femme Tarot is an adaptation of tarot cards into the realm of feminism, eroticism, and sadism. The first eleven cards of the Major Arcana illustrate the juxtaposition of divination, religion, and kink in what will ultimately become an entire tarot deck over the course of the year. Each card stays inline with the tarot symbology, but deviates from the norm by using only the female figure in all positions of power. Come to the art opening at Club Privata to see what these watercolor illustrated cards hold in store for you.
