research and other wanderings - see my website! There are comics and a store and everything: Hark! A Vagrant
Last night I was up late and this was on my mind, so I sketched it out.  I think it was the fox picture I posted last that brought it to the front, played out again like a picture show.  It’s just rough, I thought someday I’d draw it out better.  But sometimes the urge to draw a thing takes over a bit - and I’m awful impatient when it comes to drawing long strips, unfortunately.
Some backstory, as some know, I worked for two years in the Tar Sands of Fort McMurray, in various mining sites.  I paid my student loans off, I saved a bit, and I started cartooning as a job when I left.  Not everyone’s experiences there are the same, this was just a part of my own.  It’s a complicated place that I think of every day, and there are scenes that never leave my mind.
This is one night at the Syncrude site, in January 2006.  Click for the whole thing, here
