ELINOR BLAKE

Born in NYC, Elinor Blake became a singer and animator by gazing into Spanish Harlem drawing with her pencil while harmonizing over the fire escape with her sister. She soon found her way downtown, interning at Archie Comics which launched her into a career animating all over the city. By day she animated for shows like Pee Wee's Playhouse, and the networks like Warner Brothers, NBC, MTV studios, animating Madonna, The Pink Panther, Alvin & The Chipmunks and Richard Scarry. By night, she performed with her girl group, The Pussywillows everywhere from CBGBs to Madison Square Garden, and opening for The Buzzcocks, River Phoenix's band and others, and recording with members of R.E.M. and The Gun Club. When did she sleep? She didn't really. Eventually she headed out to the desert east of Hollywood to attend Cal Arts, Disney’s animation program. After two semesters, she was lured away from school, and hired onto the teamthat animated and wrote the hit shows Ren & Stimpy, and SpongeBob. It was during this period she began to paint. When she wasn't painting, she was touring and recording as April March, having left the Pussywillowsand begun a solo career. From early on she had the support and encouragement from musicians and writers such as Dan Fante (son of the writer, John Fante whose portrait is included in this show.) and Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, as well as having had her music featured on various soundtracks of the filmmakers, Quentin Tarantino and Alexander Payne. To date 11 April March albums have been released with her 12th on the way this fall. Her drawing and singing conjoined in 2018 when Jack White of the White Stripes asked her to illustrate his children's book "We Are Going To Be Friends" to great success. At the 11:00 a.m. signings at Barnes & Noble NYC and L.A., fans were lined up around the block by 5 a.m. to get their books signed. These 10 paintings from 1996-1999 are her first. This is her first show. She's honored to have it at Parlor Hair Studio with partial proceeds going to The Native American Rights Fund.

I am in my mid twenties and have been coming to Parlor since I was a kid. Truly the best place to get your hair done, everyone who works there is so kind and knowledgeable, and they always have different really cool artwork there. I have seen a couple stylists at Parlor but usually go to Chrissie who has been cutting and dying my hair for over 10 years. I now live in NYC and still go back to Parlor to get my hair done 💖
