My latest illustration fro UAJ, Burning Sean, required a bit of extra care. It’s for an article about a perfectly innocent yearly pre-ski season ritual/party gone wrong.

I thought it would be fun to give my illustration a kind of Alice In Wonderland tumbling […]
Editorial illustration for Utah Adventure Journal. For an article on the drastic changes in weather during late winter/early spring that make planning the appropriate outdoor activity difficult.
