Mark Erickson moved to the Bay Area to study painting at the San Francisco Art
Institute. He received his degrees while spending an inordinate amount of time at
Winterland Arena and in the North Beach cafes writing poetry and doodling on
cocktail napkins.
At a time when they were still occasionally prowling around the CafeTrieste, Specs
and Vesuvios.
Mark was fortunate enough to meet the likes of Bob Kaufman, Gregory Corso,
Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Richard Brautigan and William
So many coffees and so many poems in so many notebooks.
Erickson's poetry, paintings and photography have been published in the
collections, 'Splashed Against a Black Wall,' 'Lone Star Floating' 'Dakota
Poems' & 'Sideways Mindspills.' He and katy Zartl are presently working on a
new book to be published in the late in 2009, 'Polaroid: The Blood and the Glory.'
