Cursed Wolf: Abhorred and Enervated
About the Cursed Wolf (& why I draw them):
Anyone else get anxious when people stare? I get that way even if I THINK someone has looked at me for too long. It's always been an issue for me, but I found a way to overcome those feelings: I started drawing The Cursed Wolf while riding public transit. When I feel folks eyes upon me, I draw wolf's eyes on the page-- in doing so, very rapidly my anxiety shifts to excitement. Once I begin drawing in public, I am "giving permission" for others to stare. By choosing to act upon my emotions in this way, I am controlling the context of a scenario which would otherwise manipulate my feelings.

Often, the emotions that are displayed by the deformed doggies will reflect my internal dialog or mixed-emotional state. I begin each drawing with unplanned scribbles, a process called "automatism". Once the scribble is in place, I will refine it with many eyes and the contorting of anatomy. Completed drawings/sketches are later colored in my studio.

Thank you to everyone who has reached out & spoken to me while I was on the train or bus drawing these creepy pooches. Your kindness reminds me that art has the tremendous power to heal the sick, empower the weak, inspire the dispassionate & orientate the adrift. 


Reproductions & originals of the Cursed Wolf are available at SeedyStudios.com

Morgan Allen
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Morgan Allen's artistic career began at an early age as a method to convey emotions and cope with distressful situations in her life. She still strives to express raw emotions in her work and believes the process of automatism is one of the best ways to be honest with yourself and your audience. Motifs of horses, dogs, and birds are commonly used in her work to express salvation, anger, and anxiety, respectively.

Morgan Allen has studied at Blinn College in Bryan, Texas and more recently at Texas A&M University in Corpus Christi, Texas. She has traveled abroad in Spain, France, and Italy to study the Masters of art & architecture; it was then that she was influenced most by the way Masters of the Arts used allegories in nature to hint towards the symbolic meaning of their works. Morgan takes inspiration most strongly from her experiences in life & with meeting new people, travel, nature, and understanding our history's relevance to the present. She currently calls Chicago home, where she works as a freelance artist & illustrator.

Publications include a feature in AdBuster Magazine's March-April 2014 issue, "Blueprint for a New World, Part 1: Psycho"; & The Adventures of Lily & The Fox, Books 1 & 2
Interests
SO MUCH ART TO POST... as soon as I organize my files and get the high-res scans together for posting. I'm busy with commissions and other work in the mean-time. I just finished up my first show of the summer (CHICAGO) and am working on scheduling some more for the season. I've found the freedom to do my art and get bills paid, but it involved alot of responsibility for myself and promoting my work. It's a full-time job! 

This past weekend I met many fantastic artists whom I was able to connect with on a personal and creative level. If y'all are active here, please say hi! However, the majority of artists I spoke with all agreed: the hot spot is Instagram. So here's where you can find me:

@SeedyStudios is my handle for Instagram, Facebook, and soon-to-be here as well, for consistency sake. I am active on Instagram, and randomly, but frequently post my sketches and share videos. Please follow and if you like, say hi and let me know you followed me from deviantART! That way I can follow you back! :D 

You can also find me on Etsy: SeedyStudios once again is my shop name.
I'm always open for commissions unless otherwise specified. Keep in mind that I am always working on these as well, so expect a waiting-period for most projects as you're added to my list. :)

ART TRADES! I want to revive this past-time. I am down for the pen-palling sketchbook routine, or simply trading completed work for the sake of creative exchange. Any of my old art buddies feel like drawing something for the fricken hell of it and want to kick it like old times, hmu.
