10/04/19: Last week I did something a little different. I flew back to my home in the #Arctic, the forever enigmatic village of #Utqiagvik, where I painted a very fast community #mural for @ilisagvik_college. I used to work for the #tribalcollege, so this was a personally gratifying project.

It’s stylistically experimental, to fit a 5-day timeframe start to finish, which felt wonderfully loose compared to my usual approach. In any case, it was rewarding to leave this for Ilisagvik and the community. I’ll be excited to see it installed next visit. Thanks so much to many friends old and new for your generosity and company❣️
