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:

So. Back home from GEAR Con (this time for real!). Had an absolute blast even if I did work almost the entire three day weekend, plus setup, plus wrap-up. I wore the Steampunk Scavenger in the fashion show, and the rest of the time it was hanging out in the art show (since I was running around too much the rest of the time to be dressed up), and got some good feedback on it. At this point I think I’m going to keep it rather than sell it; I’ve just gotten too attached!
Also, need to gather up all the names of folks who reblogged the post about the books and all to see who won the freebies :) Expect the news tomorrow!
