Hey folks want you to meet one of the ancient ones. Say hello to Kokopelli (pronounced "Coke-a-pellie"). This dudes been wandering the cosmos since the beginning spreading the magic of music wherever he goes. Around 1,000 BC he hooked up with the Anasazi who asked him to use his powers to bring fertility and healing to the earth. Kokopelli accepted and has since traveled the world playing his flute. When he plays the sun comes out, the snow melts, grass begins to grow, birds sing, and all the creatures of the forest gather to hear his songs. It is believed that good luck comes to all who listen to Kokopelli's songs as he embodies everything pure and spiritual in music. His flute symbolizes joy. It's magic sparks creativity and helps dreams come true.
On March 10th 1973 I was at my girlfriends house in Pueblo, Colorado in a highly altered state of consciousness. Around mid-night I left for home in a snow storm, the tracers from the snowflakes in the headlights made for a trippy and interesting drive out to Rye, about 30 miles away. By the time I got home I was peaking and wondering what am I gonna do the rest of the night? I turned on the radio, KILO FM from Colorado Springs, as the announcer was saying he had a new album he was going to play from beginning to end. Since that day I’ve worn out many vinyl copies and several cassette tapes of “Dark Side Of The Moon”. In 1998 I did this color pencil drawing as a CD cover for a copy of “Pulse” I was giving to a friend for their birthday.

I once saw a picture of Keith Moon with headphones duck taped to his head so he wouldn't loose them and the idea struck me that who would be better to carry on the legacy of Keith Moon than drummer extraordinaire Animal. If you are interested in purchasing the original drawing contact me at
