Be aware that this Tumblr frequently includes pictures of art made with animal remains, as well as occasional liberal political ideologies. Mostly it's nature photography and art (and not just of charismatic megafauna).

I discovered neopaganism in the mid-1990s, and shortly thereafter began my work with animal totems and neoshamanism. Over the years I've wandered through various paths, ranging from Wicca-flavored neopaganism to Chaos magic, but for the past few years I've been creating Therioshamanism, a post-industrial neo-shamanic path. I've also been creating various neopagan ritual tools and other sacred art from hides, bones, beads and other such things since about the same time. And I've written several nonfiction books on totemism, animal magic, and related topics. My next book is "Plant and Fungus Totems: Connect With Spirits of Field, Forest and Garden", due out from Llewellyn in May 2014.
A few places to find me, as I'm all over the internet:
Ask me anything
Hey, folks. Crappy news in my crazy little world. Yesterday afternoon I had a bin full of my art and books stolen off the street while I was offloading for a show at the Bossanova. Among the items stolen were costume ears and masks, some fairly expensive handmade drums, and a whole bunch of my books. I have pictures and more info here.
I’ve already contacted Powell’s, Cedar Mountain Drums, Rhythm Traders, and Tradeup Music, and of course filed a police report. I’ll be putting up reward posters in the area, too. I’m not hoping for much here, but on the off chance anyone sees my stuff somewhere, PLEASE let me know ASAP.
Consoling pictures of cute animals, and a lack of snarky remarks, also very much appreciated.
