Nina's Alaska Sketchbook

Earlier this year, Nina Khashchina read on this blog about a unique artist residency opportunity in the Alaskan wilderness.

Her application was accepted —Go Nina!— and she undertook the adventure earlier this month. She sketched from sea kayaks, hiked on remote trails, and braved hungry mosquitoes and pounding rain for rapturous visual encounters with bears, salmon, and wild forests.

I love artists' sketchbooks, camping, and Alaska. Nina's sketches worked for me! Way to go, Nina. Thanks for sharing her success with us.

Wonderful sketches. I'd seen them already in the Urban Sketchers Flickr pool.

I was another lucky participant, and it was incredible. Here's journal in progress of my trip

I love Nina's sketchbook and I also love the fact that she's so brave to go to the wild all by herself.
