We interviewed and photographed Portland creatives we admire to find out a little bit more about their work.
Arjan Miranda: Unicorn
If you need a reminder that we're floating in space, on a stellar planet called Earth... Arjan Miranda is your guy. He makes ever-mesmerizing jams, can shred the life out of an electric guitar, believes in time travel, and of course... identifies with the Unicorn. "No really," he said to Kim as she finished the Animal Spirit Deck, "I think I am the Unicorn." With an affinity for world peace and purple hazes, Arjan's soundtracks take you to the Ether and beyond. His soundcloud is waiting for all those Earthlings in need of elevation.
