My ask box is open. I answer most questions privately, unless it's something that other people may be wondering about AND it's not something personal about the person asking. Feel free to ask me stuff about nature, working with animal parts in art and spirituality, paganism, ethical omnivory, sustainability and environmentalism, and so forth.
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, and for several few years I created (and followed) Therioshamanism, a post-industrial neo-shamanic path. These days I've relaxed into a more integrated ecopaganism, less about rituals and journeying, and more about the sacred in every moment.
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 newest book is "Plant and Fungus Totems: Connect With Spirits of Field, Forest and Garden"..
A few places to find me, as I'm all over the internet:
Finally got some new tails up—they’ve been popular as of late! This is the first round, including fox, coyote, deer and more, all with belt loops made from leather reclaimed from secondhand jackets and coats. And, just as a reminder, these tails are garment remnants that would otherwise have ended up thrown in an incinerator or landfill, gone to waste. Instead, part of the money from their sales will go to nonprofits that benefit wildlife and their habitats—thank you :) You can find them at http://thegreenwolf.etsy.com
