Erik Jacobsen is creating artwork, writing and connection

This is an experiment.
Like everything else in life, you have to begin somewhere. Like many other artists and creative types I consistently feel like I'm starting over. Every new painting, tattoo, or piece of writing I begin is a whole new dive into the unknown. I started this page because I wanted to connect with people. I assumed that anyone who likes my tattoos or art would follow, thus building an inner network between me and those that like my art. While that seems to have been doable for a few individuals, I have come to understand that we are no longer consumers and creators, artists and patrons etc. We are in fact ALL artists. We are ALL the carriers, consumers and creators of this world. Therefore it seems that new models are needed, new ways of talking about what we are all experiencing and helping each other and new ways of communicating about this thing called art.

For this reason I am continuing to change and grow into something else. or better yet, to simply stay open and never allow an identity or concept to stick for too long. I no longer wish to be known only as an artist, painter, illustrator, or tattooer. while I am these things in a relative context, I am also fed and fueled by other interests that I haven't really been able to share with people until recently. Advaita Vedanta, Yoga, Tantra, spirituality, non-duality and the new advances in psychedelic science, to name a few.
I have struggled with how to share these things with others. I have taught Yoga in the Ashtanga vinyasa tradition, I consistently share my ideas about spirit among my tattoo clients and I am currently working with writing a small book on the non-dual experience. I find it difficult however, to connect these ideas to new projects and new ideas without feeling like im just falling into another thing.
So my question for you is: What can I do for you? where can I meet you and serve you in your quest for knowing or understanding? What are your needs?


So, How does it work? Simple. By becoming a patron you are essentially subscribing to my newsletter. You are also entering and helping build a community.  You help me achieve some financial security to keep doing my own inner work and I in turn make myself available to you either through writing, art or direct connection.

What I would like to do with this platform is still taking shape, But what I would love is to be able to create things that directly connect to an audience, to create community around that which truly matters, Connection. 

Art is nothing without this connection and I would love to be able to affect the world around me in a positive and beautiful way that promotes the change I wish to see in the world. If you would be willing to help me, even in the smallest of ways, You become someone very special to me. You become the reason, the drive and the accountability for me to do good work in the world.
