The Secret City Series is an ongoing series of pen and ink drawings, with various portions enhanced by Prismacolor pencils. It takes you on a shamanic journey through the streets of Seattle. You will meet vanishing peoples from many different worlds:

Aboriginal Australians, New Guinea tribesmen; Tibetans; Native Americans: Kwakiutl, Nootka, Makuna, Lakota, Hopi, Makaw, Zuni; Chinese Ghosts, Balinesian dancers, African dancers and drummers, the Dogons of Mali, the Masai, and many more.

In a modern milieu, these colorful dancers, priests, mythological beings, and shamans are healers of contemporary man, who, through his own lack of spiritual insight, has been reduced to a walking ghost. This series also embraces extinct species, as well as endangered species. This series, which began in 1992, also reveals the changing face of the city of Seattle, and shows many of the lost and forgotten people and shops and scenes of the 80’s and 90’s.
