Last summer I had the honour to be a small part of a great program to record and recover the Haida language in Haida Gwaii. The Skidegate Haida Immersion Program is creating a large number of small books, each focusing on a specific part of the language and culture. Each book has a story with text in Haida, with an enclosed CD of an elder speaking the book’s text.
In my case, I was assigned The Bathroom, or as it’s said in Haida, K̲aax̱ul Naay. I created 18 images in ink, watercolour and coloured pencil, then add the Haida text word balloons digitally.
It was a lot of fun!
Obesity Medicine specialist Dr. Yoni Freedhoff wrote a post today titled A Genuinely and Amazingly Effective Dr. Oz Cleanse, and he requested a cartoon of this particular “Dr. Oz, Asshat”. I was delighted to oblige.
Recently, I got a chance to revisit an older piece of mine in the best possible by creating two more finishing off a trilogy!
