"Come soar across Alaska's extraordinary landscape and see its wonders through the eyes of our national emblem, the bald eagle. Alaska is our biggest state, but it is also one of the least populated, making it an enormous span of natural wonders and astonishing wilderness. This unique place is home to the tallest mountain, the most active volcanoes, and the largest land mammals in North America. See hundred-pound salmon, two-ton walruses, and thundering herds of caribou. Take wing through mountains covered with glaciers, fly under the cover of lush rain forests, and circle over barren Arctic tundras.
The Alaskan landscape and wildlife inspire his work, including his beautiful illustrations in "Sled Dogs Run" for Walker & Company.
Jon lives with his wife, Jona, and their Siberian huskies in Eagle River, Alaska.
