~ Fire & Ice ~
Image and Poem By Brian C. Zickafoose © 2012
Over a valley of crystal in a distant mystic realm,
Shadows cast long and a day grows late.
A brazen beast props atop a lofty, frosty helm,
To gather his thoughts and ponder his fate.
He broods over truths from ages before,
To journey the path that his passions follow.
Fate’s wind fans embers of memories of yore,
And stirs fiery flora to flicker the hollow.
With a nod of the head, he resolves to take flight,
After a lengthy debate with his restive soul.
He knows in his heart he must fly by night,
If he ever hopes to achieve his goal.
His destiny’s quest is to find mysteries unknown,
In the land of legend his adventures begin.
A day will soon come to rest peaceful at home,
Until it’s time to fly high away again.
DMT :: DIVINE MOMENT OF TRANSFIGURATION
Vector Illustration By :: Brian C. Zickafoose © 2011
A new illustration by artist Brian Zickafoose titled – DMT-Divine Moment of Transfiguration, delves into mysteries concerning supernatural agents, inter-dimensional astronauts and altered perceptions. Zickafoose bounds through the aeons to an era when artist and shaman were one and the same, where the collective conscious and the well-being of the tribe were dependent on the distant etheogenic explorations of the medicine man and where special fruits of the forest were selected for their messianic properties and consumed for the prosper of all, in an effort to understand the paradox of the grand illusion we know as reality.[read more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]
DMT depicts the artist, Zickafoose, in shamanic garb and telling tales of altered perception to his infant daughter, Xia Yasmine Zickafoose, as she, the light-bearer, holds a candle high, while the artist etches epic figures from visions into the rock for future epochs to behold.

Ana Sia is an electronic music performer from the Bay Area San Francisco, CA. So, when the show was confirmed, Third Eye Presents enlisted me to captivate the audience for her first appearance in Blacksburg, VA at Awful Arthur’s.
I was reminiscing about the poster days of old in San Francisco when the artwork pushed dimensions and tempted the boundaries of the imagination. I created the drafts for this in 3 pieces and pieced it together in Adobe illustrator lickety split. Threw in the color and moved the promo to the streets. My favorite part of the illustration is the white outlined space ships hovering with laser beams in the distant background.
