A Louisiana man is training for the Pike’s Peak Ascent that will be in Aug 2010. He was looking for an illustration that he could use in emails and blog posts to raise money for the boys and girls clubs. It needed to show a path with him running from Lafayette, La (elevation of 36 feet) to the Pikes Peak summit (elevation of 14,115 feet). Of course I was up for the challenge. More info about the Ascent.

A lot was happening for this family (the Project Bliss family.) Their little boy was turning one and they were moving to Washington DC. I wanted to capture it all.

A friend and I took a one week trip. Started in Louisiana, drove to Houston, then to Big Bend National Park in South Texas, all around the park, across the river into Mexico where my friend bartered for neat, handmade trinkets and drank coke from a bottle. We then decided to drive to Roswell, New Mexico, just because we wanted to see aliens. After that, we stopped at Carlsbad caverns for some caving then hit the road and drove back to Louisiana. Non.Stop. I changed my oil before I left and one week later I changed the oil again, over 3000 miles driven. In.One.Week. Woo! (I wish I had a good scan of the original. I didn’t own a scanner back then so I apologize for the xerox copy)

A New Orleans, Jackson Square icon. I can almost taste the beignets close by.

I enjoyed living in New Orleans after I graduated from college. I especially, like most people, love the architecture there. Here’s an early work that puts a Kirby spin on it.

This was our honeymoon to The Explorean, an amazing resort down around the Mexico/Belize border, in Kohunlich, Mexico. It was an adventure resort so there was tons to do. (There was plenty of time for relaxing as well.) If you’re looking for one srsly awesome trip, I highly recommend it!

This was a friendship trip weekend – all girls – in Port Aransas, TX. It was so much fun! We all had to bring one of our men’s shirts (and we danced crazily to the theme song of the weekend by Shania Twain.) We danced and laughed so much that weekend, what a great memory!

I did this piece for a friend that moved to Colorado (from TX) to work onsite for one of our clients. She had an apartment with a window that you could see Pike’s Peak from. This piece commemorated her time in Colorado Springs. Today she runs up and down that mountain like it’s nothin. It’s amazing.
