I was hoping to lighten up last night but I guess my subconscious had some residual horror to expunge.

The result was this sketch about Residential School

I was doodling a bit before bed. I had spent a couple hours researching depression, suicide and prescription drug addiction so as you might imagine I was in a somber state of mind.

But I realized I had something here, the kernel or seed for a new series of works.

A series of drawings? A series of mini-stories? A selected history?

I’m not sure yet, but I’ll put in the back of my mind and see what cooks up over the next few months.

“Get back here!” he demanded.

But this time I would not obey…

There is a whole history of Canada and the US that people are completely unaware of. I believe that with that knowledge, perspectives would certainly change, and only for the better in the long run.

I might shop this around to publishers or keep it small. We’ll see.

 

Are there stories that need to be told? Myths that need new light cast on them?

Let me know what you think below.
