Hannah Stouffer set out on a 5 week cross country trip to clear her head, get inspired and create. She's back and super charged up with a whole new body of work in progress. RAD. Here's a video of her inspirational travels she put together and a few pics from her journal on the road.
"All I ever wanted was to buy an old black van and paint an epic wizard on the side surfing through space. I’d pull up to the beach, open the door open and just draw. I'd drive it all around the the country with my dog… sleeping where we felt like, eating cans of beans, with a bottle of Jameson under the seat, black leather jacket, black leather boots, red lipstick, King Diamond, Burning Witch, Electric Wizard. Done.
It all seems so romantic. After that plan fell through, faulty car salesmen and a small claims court date, I adjust accordingly. I really had no choice, but to just GO. So I chose the next best thing- the Amtrak train. And so it begins...
Three months later, the same dirty black clothes and way too much clarity… Back to California and I never want to leave this bed again." -Hannah Stouffer, Summer 2010
