This is the first ever mural that I’ve worked on. It is also the first project that I have ever co-facilitated. I have to admit that I was a bit concerned about how we were going to incorporate the ideas and imagery of a bunch of kids into anything that made sense but Elsa Clarke is A BOSSSSSS! Can’t wait to see it mounted and installed on our wall  

Much love to my team, Elsa, Kevin & Alex Looking forward to the next project!

Prince of Darkness, Jouvert Ayiti 2013

In the end, I had to make a lot of compromises and last minute decisions about what pieces to wear and not to wear on the road. I also didn’t get to put on my makeup. It was a great experience though. At one point during the night everything almost got ripped to shreds during some kind of stampede… Nothing let’s you know how much a J'ouvert costume makes sense like wearing it in a large crowd. I will have to make some changes if I would like to wear this costume again next year… we’ll see :)
