When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

The name is signed as one word so I'll go with that and leave the question as to whether it is Erica or Eric undetermined. At any rate the work of the artist extends beyond drawings to include numerous large scale murals, installations and video, but at the heart of it all is the drawing; wonderfully charming, cryptic, sometimes dark, sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, but always alive. I'm really not even sure what else to say about them. They have no individual titles on the website, and frankly do not need them. They have a life of their own which is quite complete without any verbal clues as to their meaning or context. Go to the website www.ericailcane.org and look through them all! When you get to the bottom of the page make sure to click on the word "older" and keep going.
