Zine: Fortress of the Bear

"Fortress of the Bear" is a 62 page hand bound zine featuring sketches, photographs, illustrations, and writing created during and directly following my Voices of the Wilderness Residency.

Blurb from the back of the zine:

"In the summer of 2016 I traveled all the way from Florida to an island in Alaska's Alexander Archipelago to participate in the voices of the wilderness artist residency program, hosted by the US Forest Service. 

Since George Vancouver's 1794 expedition, the island has been known as Admiralty Island, but the native Tlingit people who call the island home have long referred to it by the name Xutsnoowu, which translates roughly to "Fortress of the Bear". True to its namesake, the island is home to roughly 1600 brown bears - the highest concentration in North America - with bears outnumbering the human residents by 3 to 1. 

This zine is comprised of written observations, photographs, and artwork that I created during and directly after my residency. It is meant to celebrate the wild lives of Alaska's coastal brown bears and the unique ecosystem in which they thrive. "
