In this May 17, 2019 photo, artist Tanner Rhines poses in his studio in Fairbanks, Alaska. Rhines is an Alaska artist, but is by no means an Alaskana artist. He takes inspiration from modern artists such as abstract expressionists Mark Rothko and Jeff Koons, the artist famous for his stainless steel balloon animals. Many of Rhines' drawings are tiny cartoon details contained in a simple silhouette of an image such as a skull or a Pokemon character. He calls this approach "condention," a word he made up when he was in high school. It's based on the word "compression," and Rhines defines it as a "psychological labyrinth of characters and life energies." (Eric Engman/Fairbanks Daily News-Miner via AP)
