Discovering Carkayous

Entry Date 2/17/2021: Since the early 1900s, there were rumors of a hidden continent that was cut off from the rest of the world. This uncharted land, known as Carkayous, was said to reside off the coast of the Galapagos Islands. At the time, indigenous explorers told tales of strange, never before seen creatures that could only survive in the continent’s delicate ecosystems. They spoke of blue fauna, burning forests, and mountain ranges that stretched across the horizon. As the years passed, knowledge of Carkayous was lost to time. Sounds crazy, right? But, stranger things have happened. In 2009, artist Jesse Smith and his friends traveled to Ecuador for a tattoo convention. In their travels, they met a man who claimed that Carkayous really did exist and that he knew how to get there. In exchange for one of Jesse's iconic tattoos, the man offered to take the crew. Skeptical but intrigued, Jesse agreed, and the rest is history.
