Prep time for Pleasant Revolution

You might have gotten a hint from my last post about me suddenly leaving Berkeley, no? Well, it is true. I now live in a school bus in North San Juan California. Thats right folks, I left Berkeley to temporarily move out to Willow Springs, a wonderful community land nestled near Grass Valley in Northern California. Never, did I visualize myself living in a school bus, but sometimes you gotta leave your comfort zone when new opportunities arrive.

Willow Springs community garden. Art, yoga, music, cooking, farming, trampolines, friendly dogs and friendly neighbors all set in the California sun. I'm not getting paid to say those things, I'm just fond of my temporary home.
So? What the hell...? Ok, I have been working day and night, writing emails, making phone calls, arranging art shows, connecting people, doing design and illustration work, skipping lunch and playing guitar. (Most of which occurs in my studio loft pictured below). I am preparing to go to Europe on a 5,000 mile itinerary traveling on a bicycle. Myself, and 11 other members ride together with The Pleasant Revolution, a collaboration of talented artists and musicians who travel to distant lands to set up shows and play music, all powered by bikes. Not only do the bikes power the show, they carry our supplies and gear (and ourselves) everywhere on our journey. I will be posting more about the trip, cause I'm the official blogger, artist, media person... connect to the blog HERE
