Artist Statement

Using Adobe Illustrator, I created this Graphic Illustration by way of request from a good friend and fellow park employee who spends his free time biking the 92.5 mile dirt Denali park road. One day he was biking around a bend in the road, and as he turned, a wild Alaskan grizzly bear appeared on the road. The rules for interacting with grizzlies is to make yourself look as big as possible and make loud noises. With his endorphins running high, he picked up his bike and talked loudly to the bear. While all of this was happening two park rangers got a blurry photo of the scene which inspired this illustration. The bear slowly meandered away, but my friend was left with a memory that will last forever. This experience is not uncommon for bikers, and sometimes the bears even chase the bikers! Yikes! Am I right? — Laura Whitelock
