Bryce Canyon Junior Ranger Field Book
The following illustrations are samples from a booklet created for the Bryce Canyon National Park Junior Ranger program. I collaborated with Visual Information Specialist Peter Densmore (content & design), to produce a 20 page field book with the common goal of fostering place-based eco-literacy in children. Watercolor and ink, 2018/19. Read in full.
