This is the first shoot I did after the GhostShip fire. Art is the only thing that makes sense to me in the face of so much death- to take this heartbreak and turn it into art... I don't really know how to express what I'm feeling, but when I allow myself to feel it- the expression takes care of it's self and I feel better in the doing of it. A secret door to a private lagoon where I can swim in the cauldron of cosmic soup- baptized by the jumbled dream sequence disintegrating into chaos... reassembling into a new order...
This was a collaboration with my hair buddy Paul Victor (who does amazing cut and color over at Spank Salon in Alameda- go see him!).

RIP to all the beautiful souls who perished in the fire. Your impact on my life and art is immeasurable. I will forever take with me lessons I've learned from you about how to show up in the world, how to have integrity and soulfulness, how to connect... Crazy the ways we are all connected...
when you follow inner guidance
you are never lost
turn within- be an insider of Life
your entire tribe is rooting for you
calling for you
connect the dots
follow the invisible fox
the ocean is singing your name
..For a vintage styled shoot in green!
