Inspired By: Steve Lowtwait – Aspen Ski
Written by Hannah Lyons
Upon my daily Pinterest scrolling, I came about the cutest illustration of a scene in Aspen, Colorado. And with the weather being majorly bipolar here in Texas, this girl is allowed to have her head in the clouds, dreaming of a snowy day in Aspen. Okay, let’s go beyond my weather rant and talk about this stunning artwork.
Unfamiliar with the artist, I quickly visited his site and became immediately intrigued. This particular poster is part of his Rocky Mountain lifestyle poster series, but let me tell you… this guy’s work goes way beyond such. A SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) graduate, Lowtwait has worked for Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network. Although his love for illustration ran deep, his adoration for the outdoors was an even greater love. How cool, right? This guy has truly covered it all.
