O’keeffe ‘s most effective composition of bones in the landscape appeared in 1941, with Red Hills and Bone; the large canvas is also among her most ambitions evocations of the arid country of which she was by then an owner, having purchased the house at Ghost Ranch the preceding year.

Fork Lightning In New Mexico

Fork Lightning In New Mexico

Earlier this fall Ryan Heffernan was commissioned by Angel Fire Resort to document their unique outdoor activities. Located in the
beautiful Southern Rockies of New Mexico, Angel Fire recently opened a multi-station Zipline Tour at the summit of their ski mountain. The  highlight stretch of the tour allows adrenaline seekers to fly hundreds of feet above the forest floor as they traverse from peak to peak, side by side, on a 1,600 foot tandem zipline.

Creosote bush
This plant occurs throughout the Mojave, Sonoran, and Chihuahuan deserts. Its distribution extends from southern California northeast through southern Nevada to the southwest corner of Utah and southeast through southern Arizona and New Mexico to western Texas and north-central Mexico. 
Actually, what botanists classify as a single species in the North American deserts is now known to consist of three genetically different shrubs. Creosote bushes of the Mojave Desert have 78 chromosomes, those of the Sonoran Desert (southern Arizona) have 52 chromosomes, while those of west Texas (Chihuahuan Desert) have only 26. 
Creosote bushes are very long lived, many of them existing for one hundred years, and can grow to a height of 15 feet. There is one living creosote bush that is estimated to be nearly 12,000 years old!
The creosote plant was a virtual pharmacy for Native Americans and the steam from the leaves was inhaled to relieve congestion. It was also used in the form of a medicinal tea to cure such ailments as flu, stomach cramps, cancer, coughs, colds, and others.

Dia de los Muertos by Cam Giblin (art kicks)

Design for my friend George from New Mexico. He let me have complete creative freedom on this pair, all the way up to choosing the subject matter. Tried to stay pretty true to Dia de los Muertos tradition by incorporating the makeup, skull candies, flowers, picture of loved one, etc.

Art Kicks
Art Kicks is an entrepreneurial venture between myself (Cam Giblin) and Art Director/friend Evan Schultz. We create custom artwork on canvas Vans shoes with Sharpie. Shoes go for $250 a pair. Each pair receives two coatings of water and stain guard to ensure the designs will last regular wear and tear. The fumes we’ve inhaled working on these shoes will probably kill us. Lung cancer, like Sharpie, is fairly permanent. 

Since the launch of Art Kicks, we have sold over 60 shoes nationwide.   http://camgiblin.com/Art-Kicks

SPACE PORT - On June 19, ground will be broken in New Mexico for Spaceport America, the world’s first commercial spaceport built for launching private citizens into space. Groundbreaking ceremonies will include a flyover by Virgin Galactic’s WhiteKnightTwo, the mothership that will send tourists on their way to space in SpaceShip2. Virgin Galactic will be the first – if not most important — tenant of Spaceport America, and already more than 250 people have put money down to take trips to the edge of space as early as next year.
