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 Beaton is one of my favorite comic artists, and I love this story because it puts a face on all the people working in “evil” jobs that are just trying to make a living for their families in a place where that industry may be the only option. She does a lot with very minimal lines, and her wordless panels are just as poignant as the ones with dialogue.
