We had a community potluck the next night in Kotzebue with more food like freshly harvested Ptarmigan eggs and Agutak, made with seal oil.
Finally, Pat and Nathan joined in a traditional Tlingit song they knew from Southeast Alaska with the Mayor of Kotzebue.

The last picture was this great out of focus, back lit picture of a man on a boat holding a bird pinned to a dusty cork board in the Bering Air lobby. It was out of place and wonderful in its own way.

Here's a bit of my process. I was commissioned to design a jersey logo for the supremely awesome Rocket Ship Park Kickball League, which plays weekly in Valley of the Moon Park.
I started off with three pages of draft designs, playing around with the space themes.
The client wanted the design in red and black with the distinctive rocket ship jungle gym somewhere, with the plan to do the rest of the park in silhouette as well.
When I sat down to do the final design, I wasn't happy with the design and the client wanted it to be printed on a gray athletic shirt. The design wasn't dynamic or fun and it didn't work on gray, so I did a left turn, using some of the themes of the 1st draft, which resulted in something I was really happy with.
As soon as the shirts are available to order, I'll give a shout.

I just had the chance to go to Kotzebue for four days as part of this year's Emerging Leaders Dialogue and I brought along a sketchbook. The trip was fascinating, but the first day started with a long session in the Noorvik School cafeteria/multipurpose room, which resulted in what turned out to be one of my most productive sketch diaries. I just got the whole thing scanned and I'll post up the pages over the coming weeks.
The first few images are from the grand wood and metal Native carvings in the cafeteria. My eyes were drawn to them all three days we were in the space.

A number of big projects have wound down recently, which has been great and lets me enjoy at least a few days of summer. I have been doing a lot of caricatures recently, which has been absolutely great. If you're interested, let me know. (The above flyer is from the 2011 ACE charity auction.)
I just finished picture below for Kim and Andy, who one it at the auction. Actually, my friends purchased it, then gifted it to Kim and Andy as a wedding present. They're going to use it as their post wedding thank you note. The image is based on a small little fire that happened in their backyard near their recently legalized urban chicken coop. I just got word from my wife that its made it to her already as an inter-office email, so I can only assume its been well received.
These faces are for tiny tiny bodies in a paper diorama my friend Jon is making for his mates Steve and Valette's wedding.

I just got back from Homer and my series of four comic classes was a complete success. All four classes were chock full of kids who were super enthusiastic about comic making. I made a point of hanging up everyone's work as they completed it and the room was completely covered by the end.

If you're in the Mat-Su Valley tomorrow on June 11th, I'll be doing a short art demonstration and talk in support of the "Native Lad" Exhibit at the Dorothy G. Page Museum in downtown Wasilla. Right after the esteemed Peter Dunlap-Shohl will be showing his stuff as well.
