Ellen Forney, transit artist
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under Ellen Forney 19 Mar 2008 9:57 PM

Seattle residents can look forward to some public art by Ellen Forney. Sez Ellen:

I'm not sure what art I'm going to do yet (Big Fuckin' Hands or naked ladies might not pass through the committee processes) but I'll come up with something with my signature feel-good flair. (Here is a "sample of my public work," courtesy of Photoshop.)

There's now a Flickr pool of art that was submitted to the Open Call page for BEASTS! Book Two (due out later this year). So far about 75 people have added their piece to the page. Above is Daniel Goffin's creature.

While you're at Flickr...

I also just posted sneak peek scans of the printed Dash Shaw book covers (white and black on Kraft always looks good). On my page here.

Then check out how awesome Steven Weissman's work looks when done with Zip-a-tone!
