Derek Erdman’s International House of Paintings

Derek Erdman is awesome, and if you need any proof of this then you haven’t been paying attention. Okay, ONE small bit of proof: He has offered every resident of Seattle a free original drawing of Carol Channing.

A free Carol Channing for every Seattleite

His work has been seen in The Stranger, where he’s an editorial illustrator, as well as in the Chicago Reader, Roctober magazine, and on MTV.

He’s also got a CD of phone pranks, for for a fee will call anyone you like and record an original rap on their answering machine. Or he’ll paint your portrait, or he’ll send your enemies a hamburger anonymously, or he’ll offer phone advice, but he promises only “partial discretion.” Basically, for $50 you can get Derek Erdman to do anything you want.

Derek Erdman will draw your kids in any costume you like.

TONIGHT, Tuesday September 11, Erdman opens his International House of Paintings as part of the Storefronts program at 666 South Jackson Street. The opening show will feature over two dozen artists, with readings and performances by Seattle luminaries Sarah Rudinoff, Lindy West, and Christopher Frizzelle.
