I've been to this spot at Pfeiffer Beach many times, and every time it's different - sometimes it's rocky, sometimes you'll see a creek, sometimes a fallen tree, and in this case - hundreds, perhaps thousands of stacked stones.. As if somebody had been stranded on the beach with magic mushrooms as their only food source. 

On that topic, some of the Grateful Dead art has been an inspiration to me for a long time. I remember the first time I visited Haight Street in San Francisco and dug through a bunch of old Fillmore concert poster prints, I was especially drawn to these colorful bears. I must have been about 12 taking in the most wild, creative and colorful artwork I had seen - work by work, from the very political art to the melted letters and psychedelic vibes, it was all very cool then, and it's just as cool now - Here's to keeping that light on, nice and bright.

This is by far the coolest tent I've ever slept the night in. I felt like I had to do the psychedelic vibe of it justice with a colorful prism style light-painting.  

The Devil's Brick

This image is based on a dream I had where I was walking on a beach and there was a sudden Tsunami, everyone starts running from the crashing waves and as I start running, a girl with a worried look shoves a bag to my chest. I look inside the bag for an instant to see a glowing red brick - hot like coals. I quickly bury the bag in sand and look up to see a charred man with cracks of glowing red on his skin in a suit looking down at me - he says 'I believe you have something of mine'.. I reply ' I believe you are mistaken' and then wake up.
