Drawn to Change

(the latest book from graphic history collective) is available now! 

 

Featuring an extension of Red Flags Red Skin, my first comic exploring Indigenous peoples and labour history.  'Working on the Water, Fighting for the Land' is a comics account of the deep Indigenous labour history and struggle on Burrard Inlet.

Togerher with researchers and authors Robin Folvik and Sean Carleton from the Graphic History Collective in Vancouver BC I am creating a new lino-cut comic narrative. Illustrated completely in relief print panels, this work will tell the story of Indigenous longshowing on Burrard Inlet and how early labour organizing by Indigenous people heped to support the wider land struggle against colonization and capitalism.
