A peek at a few pages from my journal from Australia. I got really into sketching locations during my travels. I used a blank-paged Moleskine notebook, whatever pen I had on me, and my MINISTAFF colored pencil set—I highly recommend this for travel art!

For my December art column for Moonshine Ink I interviewed three North Tahoe locals who make winter apparel: Carrie Cameron Hall, who makes ski jackets in her LetsGetBagged line; Ethan Rollins of Local Knits (see video); and Brandon Douglas of Nolan Apparel who makes ski mittens and just opened a Truckee storefront. Read my December column online here or pick it up on stands in Tahoe all this month.

My latest column for Moonshine Ink, “Art Is a Highway,” has a roadside theme as I came across quite a few cool projects that use the road as an audience, impetus or way of existence: The Nevada Museum of Art is showing a vintage neon sign exhibit, Sierra Nevada College recently purchased a Streamline trailer that’s functioning as a mobile gallery space, and San Francisco artist Jane Kim is working on a series of Highway 395 murals (part one of her Migrating Mural) to raise awareness about big horn sheep migration routes.
