Alaska 2008

Took a bullet; took a late car ride; took a fancy boat ride; grew a scraggly beard in August (in Alaska) of last year.

Trafik Miami

Back in February of 2006, Benjamin, me, and several other friends/coworkers took a long plane ride down to South Beach Miami to attend/exhibit at the Trafik Tradeshow being held at the convention center facing the ocean. This was our first time to Florida and below summarizes our 4 day stint there- I’m not a huge fan of Miami, but when you’re with good friends, any place will do… our trip start to finish:

Last Alaska Mention for the Week.

This week has been dedicated to Alaska (and my recent trip there)- me think its about time to start giving other places some love again. Maybe next week will be dedicated to Chicago? Or China? Or maybe just my quaint little apartment in Northwest Portland? But before I go somewhere else…

Below are some images me drawn/seen on said recent trip:

Alaska
As mentioned yesterday, I hope to get into carving lumber someday. In the meantime, I am just going to draw and make up my own totem-pole-style characters- perhaps put my own twist on it. I will try to keep my faces positive… I have a tendency to draw things that are mad/evil. Maybe some smiles wouldn’t hurt for a change?
Alaska
Walked on a glacier. Walked on dirt. Walked on colorful carpet. I wonder what kind of carpet pad is under there? I bet it is purrrrdy.
Alaska
Whether wet or dry, wood is wonderful.
Alaska
My table reminded me of our Version 3.1 Lace Wallet… but I will tell you, I rarely thought about wallets while in Alaska. I mentally checked out for a bit and tried not to stew over my wallet riddles too much. It was a nice break but I am indeed excited to be back at it.
Alaska
More flooring I saw. Reminded of Puzzle Wallet #189! Ok, maybe I thought about wallets a lot while there… who am I kidding!?!?!?!?!?!

Alaska, Post 4 of Many.

More photos from my recent trip to Alaska below…
Alaska
Me took a helicopter ride up and down into the middle of a 12 mile glacier.
Image above is the view I saw out the helicopter’s window as we circled for a spot to land our birdie.
The dark gray blur in the upper left corner of this image is actually the propeller of the helicopter-
This was my first time flying in one.
Alaska
While visiting this big state, I caught a lot of “big production shows.”
The red curtains were wrinkly and rich.
Alaska
A sunset one evening pictured here.
Just a sliver of sun left.
Alaska
When I got home, as per usual when back from a trip, I did some laundry.
It feels so good to lay down and sleep atop clean sheets.
Indeed, I missed my bed at home. But, I will tell you, since returning, my dreams have been a bit unsettling. I’d like to call them “stirrings.”

Alaska, Post 3 of Many.

Alaska
Me prolly will be posting quite a bit from my trip to Alaska in the coming weeks. You see, I just returned from a trip up there, and now, I’ve got lots of juicy content in my archives. I’ll be sorting through and posting about it bit by bit. To begin, the image above is a totem pole (of sorts) that I drew on the trip in my sketchbook. My parents are the characters represented here- I was just experimenting and doodling with an appropriated version of this new style of art I found.
I visited several rich Native American port cities along the southern coastline and I fell in love, for the first time, with traditional Native American art… especially totem poles which can be read about here. I’m going to keep experimenting with my pens and see what I can come up with. However, it’ll be a long while before I start actually carving lumber.
Alaska
While traveling to Alaska, I had a lot of time to stare at the ocean and reflect and ponder my position in Portland- reflecting like hot sunlight on the choppy surface of cold water. My mind nearly split in two.
Alaska
The last thing I ever want to be is the boy who cried wolf… literally or metaphorically, it doesn’t matter, it is time to growl back and it is time to gnash my yellow teeth.

Back from Alaska…

Alaska
This scruffily bearded fool got back last night at 2am.
Came home to about 1,600 emails.
Going to sort through a few things (including my emails and life), and then, I’ll be posting many more pics from the trip.
All in all, a fantastic time with my family and especially the ocean.
Image above is a glacier witnessed while there. Whoa…
