workflow

The journey as of late has been one of discovery, learning and growing. Following a couple weeks of serious creative verve hälts is now in the process of documenting and making a video time-laspe in an effort to share his latest mural experince, both to help teach the art of mural making in a funky way and give imagination a chance to speak. Art is an expression of what it is to be human that has ancient roots. As long as I am connected to the ancient ancestors the art flows. Please stay tuned more posts coming, thank you for checking out Mahaloness, have a great day.

Doing the dance, trance artist dance that is, which puts me into an altered state, no different than my ancestor artists  50 000 years ago making their marks in a cave, or a Bushman in South Africa 200 years ago dancing around a fire for hours and hours to the point of utter exhaustion, tapping into the same source. foto: Walt Flemming, champion effort my friend

The only thing that holds us back is fear, fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear of the night, fear of letting the self be itself. This is possible to overcome by trusting oneself while doing it, being it, and seeing it through.

quest

I acknowledge the ancient ancestors
whose light lit my mortal torch
who made the path I walk
my marks are also their marks
my vision a continuation of their vision
and so I journey on
this torch illuminates the way
thank you dear ancestors
for you helped to make this life
and for this I will carry forward
long into the night.

mind travel

This is a friendly reminder to be resourceful and let the imagination run wild.

…and now…

🍍’mind travel’🍍

Brand new miniMOTION picture show featuring the art & sounds of hälts

✒️🎥🎼🌀Mahaloness and halts teamed up to produce this experimental super short called ‘mind travel’ it is the second in an ongoing project where halts combines his 2D art with modern technology and sound, analog to digital, or something along those lines. The images were first drawn in a tiny book and than photographed for stop animation with some post editing. The music is a collection of sounds formed into a soundtrack, these sounds are from the halts archives and produced using Garageband. This is a resourceful imaginative operation at this stage in the game, I am working on new material, more to come, enjoy!

undulations and a mural called ‘Creator’

Life really does come in undulations, sometims it peaks, sometimes you fly over the falls, sometimes you go deep, and than cycle back to the top.

 

🌀Following a couple days of rest I can begin to plan my next and more than likely last couple sesshins on my latest mural ‘Creator’ which features the 3 jewels of art: consciousness, energy, and the gift of Life. A string of experiences led to this vision, it was sitting in my minds eye for quite sometime and once I found the right wall similar to a waterfall it flowed out of my head beautifully. I always leave room for whimsy, for a mural is a dance, as Cuban friend and muralist once told me, what a gem of wisdom because murals are a lot of work, but when you turn it into a dance it seems you can go on what feels like forever, time falls away, deadlines fall away, pressure falls away, it is just pure creative zealous and a drive thay makes it happen,  along with a few good friends stopping by with music and curisosity, a mice warm hot keal for a special soeone on between sesshins, and people passing by on the street who take the time to send a positive message, that keeps me going too. More to come soon my friends, I am just putting together a timelapse video, that I think is goong to be a lot of fun. Thank you for check it this out. Mahaloness.
