MYNDMONSTERS: Modern-Day Talismans by Karen Beachler

Wearing your myndmonster allows you to channel fear and anxiety into the talisman, freeing up your energy to pursue what matters most to you.

Wearing your myndmonster allows you to channel fear and anxiety into the talisman, freeing up your energy to pursue what matters most to you.

MyndMonsters are based on the artwork I created to exercise my own personal demons. I found having a physical representation of “invisible” fears helped me to focus my energy and center myself.

MyndMonsters are available for specific issues such as fear of flying and smoking addiction. Currently, there are several specific categories. If you have a specific issue you’d like to address, I can select a Myndmonster for you or I can customize one. Some people have had great success with their myndmonster.

If you’re interested in one of these talimans, please contact me.

Isn't life a kick in the balls? by Riddle

So the last year's been quite the struggle. Trying to acclimate to a new home. Fight chronic fatigue, and yesterday for the first time in my life I broke a bone. To be specific. I miss that while working and fractured my foot into places! Could someone please give me some advice on lifting this gypsy curse which is now my life. LOL! 

I had bought some of this holographic ribbon to scare birds away with. But instead I've been intrigued with using it in a natural setting to leave strange designs and spiderwebs in the redwood forest near my home.

Trying to use cocreate. by Riddle

$5.99 for endless creative possibilities! The Cocreate app seemed amazing. 

In reality ? It's a nightmare. Obviously designed by pretentious engineers . It's so user unfriendly . Even your most basic desires will be blocked by poorly excecuted , nonsensical- interfaces. Ugh.  

I live in a forest by Riddle

In the late 80s and mid 90s I lived off the land in central Ohio for almost 10 years. Then I made a radical leap and moved to Los Angeles where I lived for almost 20 years. This past year I returned back home. Not meaning Ohio but rather meaning the forest.

Now home is the Santa Cruz mountains  in northern California. 

and not to sound cliché. But nature has always been my greatest influence. Nature and recording the crazy times that I live-in. Nature is the greatest teacher of design and color. It's all possible. Here is a wild Lily I found while hiking today. So subtle  in color, and perfectly balanced in design.
