The Shadow Is Me: An Interview With Jamie Mooers Of Burial Ground

Though I’ve been obsessed with Burial Ground’s magical creations and otherworldly aesthetic for several years now, and have in the past had the distinct pleasure of interviewing one half of its creative team, artist and photographer Bill Crisafi— I knew very little about the brand’s shadow half, Jamie Mooers. As a nosy so-n-so who wants to know everything […]

A Disquiet Of Dreams: Colette St. Yves

Oh, Tumblr. Since my heady discovery of the micro-blogging platform back in 2009, my mind has been opened and subsequently blown by all of the incredible art curated there and the talent to which it has given rise Sure, I’ve got my problems with Tumblr; it’s frustratingly rife with un-credited art–I can’t count the times I’ve seen a […]

The Magic Of Earth And Thread: Fiber Artist And Knitwear Designer Caitlin Ffrench

When I initially discovered the captivating knitting patterns of Vancouver-based textile artist and knitwear designer Caitlin Ffrench, a glorious thrill vibrated throughout my soul, and my fingers itched madly for needles, yarn, and an immediate opportunity to try my own hand at her stitchy, witchy designs. While I like to think that up until that point I had […]

The Witch Wave Podcast With Pam Grossman

I am admittedly late to the love of podcasts, and to date, I am only regularly listening to a grand total of one.  Which makes scholar and mystic Pam Grossman’s The Witch Wave officially, the second podcast I have become obsessed with and quite possibly cannot live without. This witchy fabulist is no stranger to the adoration […]

Morph Knitwear Fall/Winter 2017 Collection

There’s something I read over at Vogue a few years ago that resonated tremendously with me, with regard to knitted garments : “a good knit is… classic, beautiful, eternal, and never quite lets on exactly how old it is.” Well-spun knitwear is forever. I have always truly gotten a sense of this timelessness and intimate attachment in Angela […]

“Lazarus Taxa” works by Caitlin McCormack at Paradigm Gallery

Caitlin McCormack creates works of somber delicacy, ghostly skeletal remains tenderly chained of fragile lace, via cotton, glue, a quickly flashing crochet hook, and deft, clever fingers. Regarding her art and practices, the artist notes that through the act of stiffening intricately crocheted cotton string with glue, a material is produced that is structurally similar to bone tissue. […]

31 Days of Horror: Days 16-31

I made it! I ended the month of October having watched some form of horror-related media every single day. I won’t say “horror movie,” as I don’t want to get called out on a technicality–some of these aren’t actually movies. Let’s just say I got creative with the concept. Also, I do want to thank […]

31 Days Of Horror: Days 1-15

Every year, right around Halloween, I have grand plans to fill the whole month–every single day in October, in fact–with horror viewing. I’ve seen other folks do this over the years and I’m usually inspired to do the same, (also, if everyone else is doing something, yes, I want in on it, too.) But the […]

A Celebration Of Magical Woman Writers With Literary Witches

I’ve never been one for book clubs (I’m not much of a joiner, I’m afraid) but if I were, Taisia Kitaiskaia and Katy Horan‘s witchy gem, Literary Witches, released into the world yesterday, October 10th, is certainly a title I’d want at the very top of the roster. Incidentally, the few book clubs I have attended […]

It is 2017 and friends, since I first learned of and became obsessed with their existence three years ago, I have tried a lot of subscription boxes.
