We first became aware of the art of Erik Stitt while flicking through our long neglected Twitter feed. It was just one of those mornings and we were taking advantage of a reflective few minutes, seeing what’s going on in the world, when this image flashed before our eyes, and we stopped flicking. In truth, all movements stopped. What we saw was a UFO hurling it’s way over a scene of beautiful white horse breakers and we were entranced. Minutes later further investigation led us to the Fade To Black radio Facebook fan page, from there we found Erik Stitt’s website and his portfolio on the premier digital art hub deviantart.com.
When compared to some of the bad 3D CGI composite art, figure rendering and digital facial tracing that pollutes the world wide interweb, we were blown away. The attention to detail, the intricacy, the vibrancy, and a feeling that what we were looking at almost seemed familiar, but not in a ‘saw it on TV’ kind of familiar.
We knew we had to speak to Erik and it wasn’t long until we discovered that there was a lot more to Erik than meets the digitally airbrushed eye.
SOYM: Reading up on your background it turns out you are an experiencer, what age did that start?
Erik Stitt: It’s really hard to say. My earliest memory of contact was when I was still a baby lying in a bassinette but through my own research, my own self exploration and kind of riffing off of others who have had similar experiences I’ve come to my own personal conclusion. It’s good for me not to try to convince anyone else of what happened. It’s all related and tied together as kind of a singular pan-experiential phenomenon. Anything that seems remotely paranormal like poltergeists, ghosts, cryptids, UFOs, aliens, all of that, I kind of put it all in one kind of category that resonates in the same spot like mine.
SOYM: So you’re looking at it as more of a multi-dimensional experience rather than these beings are coming from light years away to visit Earth?
ES: I’m not much of an nuts and bolts guy so I can’t really find any evidence from my own research that corroborates with what I experience because it doesn’t behave and it has never behaved as something that would be considered a physical incident. That just doesn’t really jive with what I witnessed multiple times, although that isn’t to say that it isn’t that. I have nothing conclusive there. I just kind of have to go by intuition on that but it sure doesn’t feel like technology. Tech doesn’t feel it just gives you a show. But this feels, there is an intelligence and an energy about it that you pick up while having the experiences.
