G the Incognito Witch has been feeling neglected as Artwork by Mollie Kellogg has been getting more of my attention. So, I created this little animated gif to reassure her I am working on her next video, though a little further behind schedule than she would like. It is a dance video with original music and introduces the new character, Ginger Anxiety!!

Artist and filmmaker Mollie Kellogg presents insights into her new paintings and short film from her Incognito Witch Project series, celebrating hidden magick.
The Incognito Witch Project, celebrating hidden magick, started as a series of mixed-media paintings in 2009. Over the years it has grown to about two-dozen paintings and several short films featuring Incognito Witch characters.
In preparation for a presentation in April 2014 of several news works and screening of my latest short film, I began a quest to further and more succinctly explain the concepts of "hidden magick," the witches, and the ramifications of suppressing one's light to conform to societal pressures.
While crafting my messages, I was brought to the concept of Jung's "hidden psyche." It was what I had been searching for -- it made all the other words and phrases I had strung together to explain myself over the years seem decorative in comparison.
Part of what drove me to seek this clearer understanding was the response of many self-selected participants who have confessed to wanting to be a part of my project because they struggled with self-love.
For my presentation, I interviewed participants, asking them to share examples of how inner magick had helped them. I consulted with an experienced psychiatrist and enlisted the assistance of Integral Lifework author, T.Collins Logan (my husband) to present the concepts of accessing one's "Inner Witch" as a form of self-healing. I sited personal stories and conveyed my clarified message.
Following the presentation several people came up to me and said they really needed to hear that inspirational message and thanked me. For them, and for everyone open to the possibilities, I created this video.
