Light Grey is headed to Iceland!

"Why would you head to such a cold place just as the spring weather is setting in?"

That's the question you're probably asking us right now, right? Well, recently I found out I was a cold weather person. I love green things, but holy crap, do I love ice.

Francesca, Chris and I are heading on an Icelandic adventure! We're renting a 4 x 4 and driving all over the wide-open spaces of one of the most gorgeous locations I've had the chance to visit. Iceland is home to just over 300,000 people (which is just under the population of the city of Minneapolis!) And, as you can imagine, we probably won't be seeing many people while we're there.

Besides the solitude, we'll be trekking through all sorts of insane landscapes.

I'm totally looking forward to taking a ton of photos, drawing what we see, sketching and documenting our trip. It'll be my fun side project while we're on our adventure.
These photos are all from our trip a couple years ago and we're incredibly excited to see all of the things we missed the first time around.

I also hear there are ice caves! (Don't worry, mom, I won't go in them.)
Anyway, I just wanted to let you guys know that Jenny Bookler will be holding down the fort while we're gone with help from Jared Tuttle and Victoria Nohl (my sister!)! So if there's anything you need or if you're just looking to chat it up with someone here at Light Grey, send an email to gallery@lightgreyartlab.com and Jenny will be a kind ear.

She's got a handful ahead of her, so if you want to send her a friendly 'hello' and keep her company while we're away, I'm sure she'll be happy to hear from you! We have a lot of fun things planned that are launching next week and the week after, so be sure to keep an eye out for those!

We're headed out on Monday so wish us luck! Here we go!
