The DIG!

oh hey there

my plate degraded so rapidly, I could only do four. I've posted all four so that you can see the progression/regression. 
For some reason animals didn't feel right for the first time in a long time. 
This concept is definitely a work in progress since it's a direct and purposeful reflection of a mix of my current goals, wishes and a tiny bit of iconography that is representative of aspects of my spirituality.

Wooly Bully

things to improve about my dancing:

more out and less inside of my body
greater hand vocabulary
learn the standards so i can incorporate them as desired. mashed potato, classic twist, really all of this:

a little more stomach control like bellydancing kind

material things to do list:
polyurethane pull-on go go boots, if not originally silver, to be painted so
fringed two piece go-go outfit, preferably an off-white
a flick-knife
multi-purpose sandals for walking long distances and dancing
oh yeah damn also have to get a motorcycle jacket i guess. i wanted to be gifted one but that's unlikely to happen within a year.
amateur jewelry machinery so i can drill mini holes into whatever i want and make fucking badass shiit. now that i have my own silk-screening kit, i'm going to MAKE things and make some money that way too

the book:

more to follow.

the resurgence

of magic.
If you haven't noticed, deep inside the layers of current subcultures, there's a building fascination and re-examination of magic.  It's abstract and yet so specific.  We've got necklaces of crystals--no longer middle-aged lady new age crisis pendants, but fuckin' hip shiit.  
We've got this universal/collective conscious for animal prints, faux and real fur, teeth necklaces, pussywillow earrings, leather clothes, feathers everywhere
the re-emergence of motorcycles as vehicles to get at freedom.
there's a lot of symbolism going around.  And what about the newest psych rock music movement... that's a real general term but for the sake of convenience...  I think it's because of the time we live in.  When we live in the craziest of times and mass society's eating their own shit and thinking it tastes like sugar we've lost control.  so here's the undercurrent, the ones who DRIVE society, saying all right you don't want to give us anything but we don't want your sugarshit anyway and we're gonna take power this other way.
So we dream real hard
get out of this reality best we can and create our own.  think on transcendental experiences

the expression of getting back to our mystical spiritual (pagan, really. not that i think of it that way) roots
but those universal symbols across time that have always represented the same concepts are coming in pretty fast, have been in place for a while.
The West, cowboys, wild horses, hard drinking, grass smoking, vintage cars that will transport you into a different time, the same diners with tiles and booths and counters and jukeboxes, vinyl records... it just goes on.

daydreams become realities

You may need this:

a service provided by my soul-sister Lilu.

watering the desert with butterflies over my eyes

ther than i can take myself

penelope's pants taken to the next slam glam level.

i don't remember who took this but when i find it i will post it

altar wall.

I'm creating a pronto plate print that is the manifestation of intent for all of my wishes, goals, and spirituality.  because I am taking the internal--turning thought into thing--it is The Truth as soon as I deem it so.

I've never been very interested in Frida Kahlo.  I always thought of her as over-hyped, like Andy Warhol.  But that kind of changed when I saw this painting in class on Thursday.

two very inspirational artists right now:

make the coolest fucking jewelry you've ever seen.
