Thank you for your interest in supporting my animal track illustrations and the Minnesota Wildlife Tracking Project newsletter.

In 2012, I published my first book on tracking, Animal Tracks: Midwest Edition, with illustrations by two superb local artists. That book helped to launch the Minnesota Wildlife Tracking Project, and has helped thousands of people--including me--grow and develop as trackers. Since that time, I have published additional tracking guides and have been learning the art of illustrating animal tracks. I am now at a point where my illustrations are ready for print and I am beginning to build up collections of track illustrations to publish.

My track illustrations fall into two groups: new illustrations for future guides; and updated illustrations of tracks in my current guides. My primary focus for new illustrations is bird tracks. As I build up a portfolio of bird track illustrations, I plan to create a deck of playing cards a pocket "QuickGuide" guidebook. Until these new illustrations see print, I'd like to share previews of my work with you and with our tracking community.

Each month, I put together the Minnesota Wildlife Tracking Project newsletter. The newsletter includes information about local gatherings and events, as well as survey reports, and a monthly Natural Mystery. Now I am adding a "Featured Track Illustration" which will showcase one of my drawings and give subscribers access to an illustration they can download for personal use.

As a sponsor, you can get a sneak preview of each month's featured track illustration, access to high resolution images, additional track illustrations not featured in the newsletter, license to use images for non-commercial purposes, special gifts, and recognition in the newsletter.

Thank you again for your interest in my work, and for offering your support.
