Silly-Sad Chamber Pop from Portland, OR

Etsy Shop:

I’ve been making a lot of felt crafts as well as other visual art and household items with bright colors and often humorous designs lately. You can find it all on my Etsy shop at !

Sounds Illustrated:

Sounds Illustrated is a series of sketches I’ve drawn of local performers. It’s an attempt to both document Portland’s vibrant music scene and capture the energy of live performance. You can find a complete collection of these live sketches and links to streaming and purchase-able music here.

You can now also find my sketches along with live show reviews on the local music blog Portland Notes.

Note to bands: feel free to use drawings on your websites and social media. I just ask that you cite me (Alison Dennis) and, preferably, provide a link a link to my site.
