I’m going to Sh’Bang Fest, and will be amongst the audience in the Saloon Chapel tomorrow 9/7 Saturday night from 9pm-close. I’m bringing a limited edition Poetry Popper – with a hand-lettered fabric patch, a signed copier broadsheet of my ribbon-winner poem Stars Framed in Adobe Clay (lettered in my handwriting), and small piece of beach glass picked by me. Compensate or romance me appropriately.
My poetry is signed: e.l.elasigue
This approaching weekend, I can be found creating artwork live, with writing on hand.
In Portland I will be at Metta:AtYyA, and in Bellingham at Home:BASS feauring Algorhythm.
I recently had the happy occasion of encountering someone who attended a previous workshop I held at Cascadia Festival in June 2017, namely Mind Maps & Synaesthetic Processes. A jeweler, he let me know he’s utilized some of the methods we exercised. It makes me really glad to know that someone who does something very different than I do can apply things I’ve shared!
Here are photos (by Omar Lopez) from the Live Muse Writing session I held beforehand, where we sited ourselves in different places near various activities to interact with our writing.
