Artist, trainwreck and goodtime gal
Some Not-So-Secret stuff about Me
I'm Brooke Kent a.k.a. Ms. Kent & brooklynbomb from North Hollywood, CA
My birthplace need not be mentioned, but I've lived in at least 8 towns, from small to large in Illinois and California. Currently the San Fernando Valley is where I've been stuck for the past 10 years. Ugh! It really is the pits.
I am a fine artist, illustrator, and graphic designer. I show in galleiries in California and I do design work for bands and various clients. I graduated from Art Center College of Design with a BFA in Illustration in Dec '04. I've also worked in the art dept. for an indy film and I run an online store. You can see my work at www.brookekent.com.
My day job is slaving away 40 hours a week teaching multimedia design to teenagers ages 15-18. That's just what I do for steady income. I also work for large music festivals (Coachella, Bonnaroo, etc.) as an artist liaison and driver.
Hobbies?....oh.....i have so many....... Here's a few: snowboarding, going to punk and metal shows, sewing, sculpting, cooking, drinking, hiking, camping, traveling.....ok I'll stop.
Just last night I watched a documentary called "March Point" on the Swinomish tribe in Washington. Three young native teens were shooting their own environmental documentary about the effects from the oil refineraries that surround their reservation and pollute their waters. These kids had already struggled through so much, and were so inspirational because they were turning their lives around through their own film-making. It was really great. Here's a link:
Can't say I've taken any action recently other than voting, so here's my effort now:
