Harts Pass No. 246

On April 12, my daughter and I returned from our first-ever overseas adventure -- a week of school visits at a small International School near Trondheim, Norway. It was terrific - absolutely! - and paired with another three days of visits in Ellensburg, WA made for a whirlwind dance into spring :) As one could easily imagine with a little exploring of the hills near Stjørdal and Meråker, there are wolverines in Norway too. Not necessarily Thor and company from the pages of Harts Pass... but you just never know!

A full-blown, big-picture post about Norway later this afternoon.

FINALLY home from two weeks of school amazing visits/travel near Trondheim, Norway and then 3 more days of excellent school visits in Ellensburg, WA. Harts Pass has been waiting in the wings a bit, but now we're back and good to go. Stay tuned for a post or two about the last few weeks of travel as well. GRRR!

The North Cascades wolverine study is coming to an end... so now the ONLY way to keep track of these critters is to keep reading these highly educational and always entertaining comics :)

Short and sweet: MANY have opinions... but it doesn't mean they're right!

Although quite opposite in many ways, recent information on climate change puts both polar bears and Adelie penguins in a similar state. Loss of sea ice = loss of critical habitat. Adaptations will (maybe) occur, but its a slippery slope indeed (pun intended). While wolverines are tough, and in this comic humorously hungry 'till the end, they too face critical habitat loss as late-season snowpack becomes less and less a reality. Stay tuned and stay ON IT with advocating for change. Warming is happening - how much, and whether we can arrest/reverse these alarming trends is up to you. GRRR!!!

Local meetings about a grizzly bear reintroduction, and the wolverines are not afraid -- of the bears!


Returning Soon!

Due to an overactive work schedule and an under-active imagination, the head wolverine at Harts Pass Comics has temporarily suspended operations. Gritty as they be, even the most diligent of the Gulo gulo can only do so much. Thanks for tuning in and come back next week!

After a LOOONG stretch of fog and grey, a few recent sunny afternoons have been simply energizing! Thankfully, we've paired that sun with some 20 degree nights again (finally) and our resilient winter will hang on just a bit longer.

You can only keep that pent up energy bottled up for so long :) VERY glad to be done with my most recent book illustration project, excited to see who it comes together with the designer typefaces etc., and ready to start the next -- GRRR!
