I’ve spent the last few weeks listening to the audiobook Into Thin Air, which recounts the disaster on Mt Everest in 1996. Since I was listening to the book it freed up my eyes and hands to do some drawing. As I was drawing and listening, my mind began to drift back to Nepal where my wife and I attempted Everest Basecamp. It was all really inspiring and topped off by seeing the Everest movie the day it came out in cinemas. Everything culminated into this ink illustration that I call Mountaineer.
