Drawing, Skateboarding, and More.

So recently I have been expanding what I cover on my Youtube channel. I have been mostly known for my foraging and rewilding, but I have many sides to me. Here are some of my recent videos. Hope you enjoy!

Paint Brushes Update.

So I had some requests to see how the paint brushes I made here worked, so I made this video.

 

Anyway, as of right now 3 of the 5 dvds with free brushes included have sold. Here is a pic of the finished painting I did. Let me know if you are interested in it.

It isn’t my normal style, but it is a fun little painting. I hope to do more soon.

Hand Made Brushes.

105

Recently I have been having fun making paintbrushes with natural materials. They are inspired by Nick Neddo’s book The Organic Artist. The handles are made from privet (Ligustrum spp.) branches, and the bristles and cordage are made from yucca (Yucca spp.) leaf fibers.

I am considering selling brushes like this eventually, but in the meanwhile, the next 5 people who buy a copy of my dvd will get one for free. You can order bellow, or by following the Shop link.

1st Morel of 2017 + Updates.

IMG_6536

So I found my 1st morel of 2017! Watch the video below, then find out more of what is going on this spring.

I knew the morel wasn’t prime when I was there, but I didn’t realize how far gone it was until I watched the video and saw it close up. I also only noticed 1 of the cute little spiders crawling on it. After I shot the video, I found 2 more morels, one tiny and one relatively large, but both were in as bad shape as the 1st one. Hopefully we get some good rain soon.

Updates:

For local people (Lancaster County PA) don’t forget the plant walk I am leading Saturday April 22 @1pm @ Millport Conservancy, and the mushroom class William Padilla Brown is teaching Friday April 28th from 5:30 pm till 8:00 pm, also at Millport. Ask me if you have any questions.

Also, I have been posting more videos on Youtube than I had for a while.

Here are some plant videos:

And here are some book reviews:

Thanks for reading and watching, and let me know what you want me to cover in any upcoming videos!
