Who is this Guy?

I’ve been creating art as long as I can remember. When I was 11 years old, I began to make a conscious effort to become a better artist. This was around the same time I acquired a drafting table and professional drafting tools. During this early period, I mostly drew line art of sci-fi type vehicles from my imagination, as well as images heavily inspired by the early Star Wars films. A few years after arriving in Tokyo, I started using the ballpoint pen to created art. I found this to be the perfect way to put what I imagined to paper. After nearly two decades of creating art with a ballpoint pen, I feel I’ve satisfied my potential –– though I’m not spent yet –– so recently I’ve become interested in painting. I still love exploring the potential for unique images using a ballpoint pen, and I am excited about what new images I will paint •

This third exhibition in Tokyo will feature mostly new ballpoint pen artwork; all for sale. This’ll only be for three days, so I do hope you can come by for a look, and if you’re ready, to buy artwork done by this human’s hand •

This is coming about two years after my first solo show–Tokyo Solo 1, and another year and a half after the pandemic began. Yes, we’re back on! I’ve been improving the work I’ll show during this time, so come expecting more excitement than you previously imagined. Hope to see you there! •

Dispatch, Surrounding the Foreign Unknown

Dispatch This image was created entirely on the iPad using Procreate.
Synopsis: Surrounding the foreign unknown, Elixir 5 and Bespoke didn’t find any indication of sentience other than the creation and apparent abandonment of the object. Where is the maker? The best course is to wait x time before the inevitable reverse-engineering begins •

Newly Finished: Apropos

I started this piece, titled Apropos, in December of last year, and finished it today, January 20, 2021. It was to be a quick fleshing out of some warm-up type line work I often do in the hope of selling it as I’m in the process of setting up an online shop. The intention is to pull the bulk of all this line artwork I have stacking up out and polish whichever parts can be made presentable and sell-able. This was to be the case here, anyway. As it turned out, I kept going until I was about half-way through with what you see here, and decided to start documenting my progress on video. After about 13 videos, each over an hour, with some close to two hours, and not a little off-camera work, I arrive at what you see here. I intend to post the progress videos every week until I run out of them, as well as a time-lapse version. This is the start of what I hope to continue doing — making art on camera with ample commentary to fill in the visual component. Where: my page on Facebook (Art of Eric Seaholm), Instagram, and here on my website, all linked via my YouTube channel (under my name, Eric Seaholm). When: I’m hoping before this week is out. I’ll keep you posted •

Trying to Sell Its

Ok so today I opened up a page to sell my art. The first promoted piece is The Appointment. I’ll try to keep posting new art as old stuff gets sold, all on the Buy Original Art page (link at top) •

The Practitioner

The Practitioner failed the exam, so all responsibility was given to a lesser practiced person, and through the ensuing mistakes and consequential loss of life, improvements were made to the exam, which The Practitioner re-took, passed, and returned to practicing, qualified and error-free •
