Saturday evening I had the pleasure of going to hang out at my friends Kristen and Andy’s house. This is the view from their front patio. Look at those colors. Fall is coming! 

I only wish I could have been able to capture the stars that lit up the sky that night. Enough to make you feel really tiny, really quick like. Magical stuff. 

Thank you Kristen and Andy for sharing your castle with Sabrina and I for a few moments! 




So my friends and I went in search of Aurora Borealis in the Columbia River Gorge last night to no avail. 

But nothing compares to drinking beers and wandering around Multnomah Falls after dark whilst in the company of some of my bestest friends.

Just another life moment I won’t be soon forgeting. The earth is our playground.Be free fellow earthlings.

The world is NOT a scary place. It’s our home. Be free fellow earthlings. We have the magic to do whatever we please, you just gotta believe. Be Free!



It’s kind of like a puppet show but more frustrating. 

Maybe it’s over fabricated in my head.

But we tried to attack Syria sometime back.

Don’t ask me when I don’t do so good with keeping up with time and politics.

I follow the basics. I follow intuition.

I take care of me and my own.

Less is more.

Anywho people kind of got worried. Drone talk was a pretty new scare I believe.

But now their is a big bad wolf in Syria and Iraq again.

Also at some point this 10 years I’ve been hearing about how the fucking troops are coming home.

That’s a decade of my life man.

Enough time for us to live in fear and get lost in a whole new world of… stuff.

It all started with the War in Afghanistan.

Makes sense. Attacked by terrorist, that’s hypothetically where the big bad wolf is.

A couple years later we get magic phones and social media

Every year there’s a shinier and shinier toy and a quicker and quicker way to the interwebs

I’m not saying all these toys are bad. I think they’re the best weapon we have.

Going back to now:

10 years later

New iphone 6 and now a some magical, future watch, gadget… thing.

Now Obama has stated he has the power to do what he needs in Iraq and Syria without Congress.

His speech is at 9pm tomorrow.

This is just moments before the 9/11 moment.

I’m not asking you to live in fear.

I’m just asking you to tune in and listen.

I’m going to listen, but it don’t feel right in my stomach man.

I’m shocked I’ve been able to hold focus to still be typing words.

Also a news clip I watched with the Prime Minister dude in the UK said the war over there would take a long time. He spoke in decades I don’t remember whether plural or just one.

But I’ve already seen a decade of this repetitiousness.

Change is happening. 

Even if it’s another 10 years of fear and high tech gear.

It’ll be more intense. The interweb is still very new to us.

Maybe I just have to much hope in man.

Take time to look up at the stars.

If you read this far, we’re gonna be alright. 

Be Free!

Summertime is busy. You go go go. The adventures are external and it seems it’s impossible to convey all the lessons you learn.

I’ve really lacked in wordy blog posts but Fall is coming. Fall is coming fast. 

Expect lots of pictures of Fall foliage and lots more of my head thoughts. So what’s going on in my head and stuff you ask?

I’ve been working on characters for a new book. When I wrote lyrics for Nausicaa I’d add words on top of music my bandmates I wrote.

I’m taking the same approach to the new book. I’m getting lost in the drawing and then see what stories the characters have to tell me. 

Also I got a new job! Oh yeah! As of this Thursday I begin working at Vivace on NW 23rd and Pettygrove making coffee and crepes! Goodbye Starbucks! You won’t be missed! 

Nextly… I’ve begun a new music project with my friends Tim Craft and Kieran Arnold. Some kind of heavy bluesy mess is sure to ensue. It’s been too long since I’ve done some kind of music and I’m totally stoked to see what happens.

My friend Elena Lopez-Trigo came out from Miami and visited this Summer. I’m very grateful for that. Nothing like connecting with an old friend and feeling like you never missed a beat.

Expect more updates and rambles other than just Sleepwalking Moments. Though I do enjoy those posts. It’s a very meditative ritual where I rid myself of expectation and stick to very basic shapes and line segments and see what happens.

It reminds me to breathe and think over what is happening in my life. The beauty in Sleepwalking Moments is what I do for therapy is an open interpretation comic for you.

I’m finally making more money so expect new Sleepwalking Merch sometime sooon…ish…

I love my friends. I adore my girlfriend.

It seems that sometimes I have to wait a long time for good stuff to happen and sometimes it all happens at once and it’s hard to convey my appreciation and I get stuck in your head trying to make sense of it all.

I’m in a good place even if it’s just for a minute; momentary bliss seems way better than conflict. 

I leave you now interweb friends.

Trust magic. Be free. Sleepwalk with me.

Another time. Another place.

#barart #pdx #saturday #wtf #justsayyes (at B-Side Tavern)

Yesterday I went to the Columbia River Gorge with two of my favorite people in the entire world.

This is the magic that had happened as told through digital photography. 










Remember a year or so a go. Maybe it was less. Maybe it was more. I’m not so good with time you guys…

But do you remember when Obama let congress decide whether we attack Syria or not because we started a little rumble but somehow we still weezeled our way in there.  

It don’t feel right guys. It don’t feel right at all. I think the time to get rowdy is becoming more and more unavoidable. 

I gotta go make some more coffee. Just think about it for me. Be free!
