Hathor Planckton and family called our North parking lot home a couple weeks back. Planckton is passionate about sharing art, exposing art’s importance in society, and advocating sustainable living throughout the United States.
Planckton, her partner Leroy, and their two small children live in what they call Dragonflybus, a converted 1953 Chevy 5800 School Bus with a 1953 Blue Flame van welded on top for additional space. Planckton says, “we’ve got solar panels, a refrigerator, and a really warm stove; our floors are finished, our walls are finished, my bed reclines down from the ceiling; my kids have bunk beds in the back. I am an extremely happy homeowner.” The walls are insulated with re-purposed denim, and the stove is wood-fueled, vintage, and sturdy.
And it’s truly a home—Dragonfly bus looks, inside, like any other home to a family with small children. Trinkets and toys are stashed and strewn, and the welcome, warmth, and color are undeniable. When I visited, there was even a blanket fort in progress.
Planckton’s art is an eclectic collection of portraiture, still life, and scenes from her travels. And while Planckton is an artist, the exterior is crowd-sourced art. Whenever the bus hits a town, Planckton issues an invitation for residents to add their own art to the bus.
The Pajama Factory community enjoyed having Dragonflybus and Planckton’s family with us for a week and a half; their commitment to living a life of art aligns with our ideals and mission. We’re looking forward to another visit when their travels bring them back this way.
