Winter on the southern shores of Lake Superior can be—how to put this accurately—ferocious. That’s not a bad thing. It simply means that to thrive in Northern Michigan, to press through hundreds of inches of annual snowfall and the long, dark months of bitter cold, you have to have a bit of grit. A little […]

Some days are more lazy than others and sometimes you sleep late and snack unwisely and decide, Nah, I’ll just leave the pajamas on in order to spend a little more time perusing funny cat videos on YouTube only to come across—purely by chance, having nothing to do with a beneficent universe trying to send […]

Two hundred screaming people gathered in a tight half-circle around a seashore can mean a few different things. Think: shark attack, celebrity sighting, buried treasure suddenly unearthed.

Cole Chambers, Muncie, Indiana: former professional bull rider, everyday conservationist, and avid outdoorsman. Once, for an agonizingly long stretch of eight seconds, Cole Chambers white knuckled a rope pulled taught around the muscled, bucking midsection of an irate bull named Diesel Smoke. He didn’t fall off. Cole was 22 at the time, which meant he […]

Each year there are a smattering of summer days in Anchorage, Alaska that, to arrive within them by airplane, might convince you that God set up his earthly throne right there, smack in the middle of all that crisp blue sky and fresh air and not-too-oppressive heat. And furthermore, was that a moose you saw […]

Made Like You: Dan Pemble

October 10, 2017

To scroll through images of Dan Pemble’s artwork is to rollercoaster through pop culture, religious iconography, deep familial nostalgia and, here and there, super scary monsters. He’s good at what he does. Really good. Faces needled into swathes of skin seem alive, as if they’re about to start a conversation. Or finish one. Animals seem […]
