This is a style study for a new series of pieces I'm working on.

I created this months ago, after an extremely challenging parenting day.  My then two year-old, had refused to let me go when she finally fell asleep.

Douglas Winter Solstice Sunrise

After what seems like months of grey, the sun came out this morning (9am-ish) here in Juneau.  This is from out of my kitchen window, looking at Douglas Is.  The lighting changes every min. in the five hours of daylight right now.  I'm sure I'll do other scenarios in the near future.

Beaver in regalia

For Beaver to go through his transformation to being Swiftwater Bill, I decided that he needed regalia.  For most of this, I was inspired by what people were wearing for Celebration this year.  (Celebration is an event every 2 years in Juneau for Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian nations to celebrate their culture.)

Extra Klondikers

Here are some of the other characters for my story that I've been working on.  They're all secondary, but still a lot of fun to work on.

"Places in Culture" Whale Tail Trail SOLD

This project is a fund-raiser for the life-sized 27-foot bronze whale that will be placed on the Juneau waterfront.  Nine other artists were selected to decorate other tails.

I created the concept, design, and illustrations.  Commercial Signs & Printing printed the pieces on vinyl film and laid the illustrations over the tail by hand.

The idea is that while people reflect on the individual locations around Juneau, they will remember, either consciously or subconsciously, that they are on Tlingit land.  Everyone has their own personal attachment to specific areas, but regardless, they need to have respect to where they are.

These are the illustrations that I used to fit into the U and ovid forms.  The ended up not using the tram piece.  The Mendenhall Glacier is on the back of the fluke.

Another stab at a Robert Service character.

You'd be grumpy too if a bear kept destroying your coffee shop.

Front Street Variations

I decided to play around with other lighting scenarios for Front Street.  I think I like these better than the actual one I did.  Oh well.

Eagle Sun with Mt. Jumbo SOLD

This was one of those rare, yet extremely rewarding instances where the art directed itself and made its own statement.  I was just thinking of creating a pretty picture of Mt. Jumbo, perhaps tied in with Eagle as the sun.  This view is directly across the channel from Mt Juneau, where I did Wolf in the Moon (coincidence, not intended).  With the moon piece, the mine is up and running, taking over the land; Wolf (moon) disapproves.  Here, both the pier and pump house are no longer in operation, and the Eagle (sun)  is triumphant.
