Highlights from the interwebs these past few weeks:

Can't get enough of Dangerdom's MCM Illustration board on Pinteres.

Get Outside: Park Butte

I took a break from the shop this weekend and did an overnight hike to Park Butte lookout in the Mt. Baker National Forest. It was truly one of the best hikes I've been on. It feels like you should have to hike for 3 days to get the views at Park Butte, but it only took about 3 hours.

Here's a Hyperlapse video of where our party camped... some in the lookout cabin, some in the tents just below.

For your inspiration consideration, here are the high points of my internet travels this past few weeks:

  • Pascal Campion is an amazing illustrator. This guy's been publishing a “sketch” a day, Monday-Friday. Since 2006. Yeah. His ability to capture light, movement and story is pretty fantastic. Here’s a great write up  and video about him on The Fox Is Black.
