I’m stoked to announce that I’m once again teaming up with Conscious Alliance to bring you a 3D Lenticular poster for Electric Forest 2013!
The last major food drive we worked on together was for Winter Carnival 2011, and it was the most successful food drive in Conscious Alliance’s history, bringing in more than 25,000 meals to those in need! With your help, we’d like to try and break that record this year in the forest!!! Just bring 20 non-perishable food items to the festival, and we’ll hook you up with this killer poster! Monetary donations will also be accepted…
This is another piece inspired by my time at the cabin this past winter. I did a lot of back country snowboarding in the area, and there was a huge red fox that I would see almost daily. Every time we crossed paths, I felt that crazy energy that makes your hair stand on end… an electricity. He would usually appear in the peripheral, at the edge of the forest… and only for a second. We would acknowledge each other, and he would disappear before my dogs even noticed.
Moments like those make me stop and think about my place in this world, and how lucky I am to experience it… about how these creatures exist in the wild far from our daily comings and goings, our errands, our chores… and even though it often feels like we are worlds apart, sometimes we share the same space, and we don’t seem so different at all.
Now whenever I see a fox, I’m reminded of that one in the mountains braving the high-country winter. I reflect on our inter-connectivity… how physically they may be different foxes, but spiritually they could be one.
We are all sharing this life, this energy, this electricity… and I’m grateful for those times when I get stopped in my tracks long enough to savor it.
