I love drawing ideas because you realize that you can manifest your goals and dreams into reality. I always wanted to skateboard out onto the stage as my entrance, and now I have done that several times - it's a blast!
For years, I gave these real four-leaf clovers out as gifts. I saw it as one of the most magical gifts you could give someone. Funny that this post landed on #13.
If I ask myself honestly, “Where would I be without Jeff McBride,” I know deep in my heart that he saved my life. Jeff is a shaman who empowers us through his magic to reach our highest potential. During the first time I saw Jeff lecture and heard him talking about real wizards living on the earth, I was placed in a mythical space. Jeff taught me that magic could be a gift, and that you can use it as a metaphor to empower and charge people’s moods and realities. Around Jeff, the world becomes a better place - Jeff pushed the wave of magic towards Art.
“It has always seemed that a ‘coin from the ear’ might be seen a metaphor for having hidden riches with us. Sometimes we need a mysterious stranger, who will pull something out of us... a hidden treasure, skill, knowledge, or a secret gift we posed... but need them to make us aware of ... to show it to us. It’s behind your ear... could that be a subconscious level? Just behind or beneath the surface we know as our ‘reality,’ then at a deeper level of consciousness we find riches beyond our current understanding or imagination.” - Jeff McBride
I was going to use a bird's nest for hat. I still used the magic wand my father gave me, created naturally by beavers. And wear wooden shoes. If you saw my park show in LA, the costume was close to this. I played this character for a while but have simply evolved into someone different now as an artist.
