About Me

I write, travel, sell artwork in the post-Grateful Dead counterculture. Burning Man (Black Rock City) is the place on the planet where I feel I can most truly express myself. My community is extensive and weird. I like nice people... "strangers stopping strangers just to shake their hands."

My home page is http://popeshady.com. My online store sells Blotter Art at Shakedown Gallery.com and my Facebook page is http://www.facebook.com/popeshady. My profile on tribe can be viewed at http://people.tribe.net/shadygrove.

My passions in life are simple -- good friends, good music, food, drink, dancing, art and removing the malignant influences of the neo-con psychos from the landscape of America.

I like mysticism and weird religions and am wary of fundamentalism of all varieties. My church is the Born Again Pagan, Christian Mystic, Zen Gypsy Warlock, Psychedelic Mind-Fucked Church. The Church is omni-directional, poly-denominational, for prophet and likes gurus too.

(Oh, and I saw Jerry more than five times, I just entered my first five shows and then got bored of doing that.)

Looking for

signed copy of Allen Cohen's hardbound Oracle compendium. had a chance to buy one from Allen just before he passed away and did not do it. it's a rare find and quite a beauty.
