Above is a lino-cut print of the exit trail out of Koyuk, AK for the Iditarod Dog Sled Race. I did this print from a sketch from my travel journal based on a sympathy card I did for a friend. Enough said except that some images take long and unexpected journeys.

I plan on doing one hundred of these prints and will send them to fellow volunteers (the ones I have addresses of)  I’ve worked with at Koyuk until I reach 100. Then I’ll do another print of a different scene.
