I am homesick and am missing the majestic ruggedness of Montana, so to cope with that I am going to create a series of illustrations to pay homage for my home state. My feelings towards MT have fluctuated over the years, but now that I’ve been living in Minnesota for the past 6 years, I am realizing that I really do want to go back.
That photo is from my trip to Glacier National Park a couple years ago. The mountains in western Montana are absolutely breathtaking and nothing in Minnesota can inspire me in the same way.
So as I was saying, I am going to be creating a Montana series. To start, I will be drawing this grizzly bear with huckleberries.
