I also write for CVLT Nation and Profane Existence. Currently trying to write and illustrate a book on Irish mythology. Where I live is by an ancient burial mound in the mountains, which is a constant source of inspiration. If your looking for any artwork or layout design done get in touch.
This is a blog of ramblings, artwork, music, homesteading/permaculture, DIY ethic and the mundane.

A Horse in front of Knocknarea in county Sligo.
Knocknarea is the burial place of Queen Maeve. The Queen of Connaught in Irelands national Epic “Tain Bo Cuailgne” and possibly the tutelary deity at Tara Hill turned Sovereignty Queen. Her presence there emphasizes the mountains importance in Irish culture in the medieval but it may have been important far earlier in our history than that.
This November archaeologists found human bones one of the caves in Knocknarea. It means between 5,000 and 5,500 years ago people carried the corpses of their dead up a sacred mountain. After a hard climb carrying the bodies, they squeezed through the narrow cave entrance, and laid their dead on the cave floor.
Going to see Mark Thomas today, he always grabs your attention.
I am in love this week with old lime stone kiln’s from long ago. They remind me of ancient sweathouses.
