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.

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.
