One Feather is a guy who lives in a van at East Beach in Santa Barbara. His van is decorated with trinkets and beads to the extent that there is no part of the original vehicle exterior visible. He parks in the pay lot all day and collects donations from any tourist who wants to take a photo or him or his van. He will talk the ears off of anyone who will listen... primarily expounding on the joys of cannabis. Quite the character.

Here's a link to a story about him in the local online press.

Fantastic details and light on this portrait of a man! Love how I can see great details in the beard, the eyebrows and even some great catchlights in the eyes. His gaze looks directly at the audience and with the smile lighting up his face it is as if this gent is greeting us. Top notch work.
