Tourists



This little scene is inspired from the many tourists we had here in Juneau over the summer. Often, the cruise ships would provide some kind of character in costume or mini totem at the bottom of the boat ramp for the tourists to take their pictures with. Pretty much every tourists proudly wears some sort of apparel with "Alaska" on it, and couples ALWAYS match.

Swiftwater Bill Turn-A-Roung



I drew this a year ago, but thought I'd post it anyways to get myself motivated to really get working on this project again.

Pizzaria Roma menu board


Apparently I'm in the hand-painted sign business. Excuse the bad picture. Hopefully I'll get a better one once the sign is up?

Character Tiles at Taku


Along with my development treatment of A Klondike Tale, Taku Smokeries in Juneau is also selling 6in. tiles of some of my Tlingit characters. They're going fast, so come by if you want one! They are also selling prints of my work: Best Friends, Lynn Canal, Eagle Awakened, and Road Kill Cafe.



Taku Signage







I've been doing a lot of signage along the cruise ship dock in Juneau. These are signs for Taku Smokeries. Yes, that's right, they are also selling the hardback version of my book, trivets of characters, and prints of artwork-come by and buy!

These were for the Flight Deck. Sorry for the distortion and the model airplane in the middle of Taste. They're up on the bar wall. The No Alcohol signs were for the Twisted Fish and I made 9 to line their patio.

The Carver's Daughter


I saw this girl at the Eagle totem pole raising at UAS the other weekend. She may or may not have been the daughter of one of the two carvers, but I was under the impression that she was. She was in the process of getting dressed in her ceremonial regalia. It was a hot day, so she was delaying putting on her heavy button blanket.

Abstract Thumbnails


I have been commissioned to create a group of abstract paintings. This is a whole new venture for me and I feel a bit like a fish-out-of-water. I'll try to keep posting the progress, and we'll see what becomes of it.

Xat and the Feather Kite


I came across this Tlingit story the other day about a little boy named Xat. He found a feather on the beach, but when he picked it up, the feather started to carry him upwards. Unable to let go, the other children grabbed ahold, trying to pull him back down. Then the women working in the village noticed that all the children were flying away, so the also grabbed hold, trying to rescue the children. Then the men followed. This is part of a story explaining how a whole village disappeared.

"A Klondike Tale" in March

This will be my last wordy post, I promise. I really need to draw something to post up. Two events this weekend: First Friday's in Juneau, I'll be at Jim Kelly's State Farm office at 9109 Mendenhall Mall Rd #1. Art and limited copies of my book will be for sale. I will be putting on a bigger show at the same location in April, so look out for that. Second, on Saturday I'll be presenting on preproduction in regards to "A Klondike Tale" for Reel Films at JAHC at 7 & 8:30.
