Look Up! Skier taking an avalanche rescue course has trouble finding where the instructor hid the avalanche beacon as a squirrel looks on. Editorial illustration by Scott DuBar.

Editorial illustration for a Utah Adventure Journal article called Look Up about the lessons learned while taking an avalanche rescue course. The instructor hid the rescue beacon up in a tree, but the student is so fixed on staring at his beacon that he fails to notice it.

This was my very first 100% digital illustration done using Clip Studio Paint, my new favorite drawing program. Better than Photoshop in every way! And much more affordable. I was able to get the EX version for 50% off, so for $100 I now have streamlined my whole working process and get to forever avoid Adobe’s ridiculous subscription scheme.
