Here is a sketch comic I made called Ducks, in five parts.
Part One
Part Two
Part Three
Part Four
Part Five
Ducks is about part of my time working at a mining site in Fort McMurray, the events are from 2008.  It is a complicated place, it is not the same for all, and these are only my own experiences there.  It is a sketch because I want to test how I would tell these stories, and how I feel about sharing them.  A larger work gets talked about from time to time.  It is not a place I could describe in one or two stories.  Ducks is about a lot of things, and among these, it is about environmental destruction in an environment that includes humans.  Thank you for taking the time to read it.

This is beautiful and complex and if you don’t know Kate Beaton’s other work on Hark A Vagrant … then you should.

These are exquisite !

I’ve been thinking a great deal about my Sculpties page and as I post new images, I’m constantly thinking about what narrative I’m crafting.  I have found that very quickly and without any planning, Punch and Judy have very quickly become the key players.  Just tonight, I revived the trope of the characters’ constant beating each other over the head by strategically positioning my studio rolling pin in the background.  

I’m really excited to see where their stories can go and what new narratives I can craft as these characters continue to grow.  

To catch up on their antics, you can check out the archive!

Firing today and tomorrow …. So nervous! #thesiscountdown
