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.

Kate’s best work IMO, read it read it read it

It’s Saskatoon season in Edmonton!
“The Cree called the berry misaskatômina. Mis means ‘everywhere.’ The berries were found all over the landspace of Alberta. When the Europeans arrived, they shortened the word to saskatoon. Today, they are called osâskatômina by the Cree…The saskatoon plant has many uses and was used by most of the First Nations and Métis people living in Alberta. They are part of feasts all year long.In the past, the bark was used for arrow shafts, and different parts of the treewere used for medicinal purposes. For example, the inner bark or roots werea remedy for diarrhea.”

I legit picked 60 pounds of these on Sunday.
