Hey lovelies! It has been much too long since I’ve shared any of the alchemy I stay brewing on this site. Over the past few months I have been hard at work developing Women.Weed.WiFi, a female art and cannabis collective. Together with my friends, we maintain a weekly blog that covers product reviews, spiritual guidance, and interviews with other artists we dig. Recently we launched our quarterly zine, the first issue called, “Say Perhaps to Society,” that features words and art from contributors and yours truly. Oh yeah, and we throw really bangin’ parties 😉 Read our manifesto and follow Women.Weed.WiFi to stay up to date with my creative endeavors.
I am pleased to share the completed mural by the incredibly talented Joe Nix. This piece was created for Uncle Ike’s Pot Shop in the Central District of Seattle and within a few weeks of meeting with Joe he had already completed this beauty. When asked if I wanted to be a part of the project I was humbled and hella excited—be spray painted larger than life on the side of a pot shop? Absolutely. Though I’m still fairly new to the city and the area, I have been here long enough to know that the profile of the Central District is rapidly changing (read GENTRIFICATION: the ruin of communities of color everywhere) and therefore the decision to put my kinky fro and blackness (peep the “Uhuru” shirt [meaning “freedom” for the uninitiated]) on the building makes me even happier than seeing my face every day 😉
