TRAVEL SKETCHES

While travelling, I had to sketch daily as a part of the travel scholarship. I posted some of the sketches while I was on the road, but had difficulty sharing most of my sketches. I finally put together a digital sketchbook after scanning in all of my sketches. Flip through the book below to lookContinue reading “TRAVEL SKETCHES”

COLORFUL YELLOWSTONE & THE GRANDEST GRAND TETON

Driving through the potato state, Idaho, was worth it for the amazing beauty of Northwest Wyoming, the home of Yellowstone and Grand Teton. This was our first time finding trouble camping.

And of course, we pulled off so KyleContinue reading “PICTURES CAN’T CAPTURE THE BEAUTY OF MOAB”

A LONG DRIVE TO COLORFUL COLORADO

After a long, Harry Potter filled 14 hour drive from Chicago to Boulder, we spent our day in Boulder with two good friends Matt and Kate, and their pup, Riley. They suggested hiking Bear Peak, and the hike kicked our butts, or at least mine. We hiked Bear Peak in the morning via the FernContinue reading “A LONG DRIVE TO COLORFUL COLORADO”
