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.

I take no solace or joy in this man’s passing. We will not dance upon his grave, nor stand vigil at his funeral holding “God Hates Freds” signs, tempting as it may be.

He was a tormented soul, who tormented so many. Hate never wins out in the end. It instead goes always to its lonely, dusty end.

"
George Takei (on the news that Westboro Baptist Church founder Fred Phelps is dying)

when girls press their whole body against you when they hug, it means they like you a lot. also, they’re measuring your body to determine how long it will take them to eat your flesh, a technique shared by boa constrictors

Cactus by Fabio Zonta

So much dizzying geometry. —MN

CAM plants are so badass. While just about every other plant in the world fucks around and throws away 97% of its water into the atmosphere by having its stomates open during the day, these BAMFs (brilliantly adapted motherfuckers) have figured out how to do all of their gas exchange at night. While everybody else is running around constantly fighting to photosynthesize, these guys just sit back, soak up the sun all day, and then turn it all into a bottomless glucosic shitshow when the sun goes down. That’s why you can find these juicy little bastards full of water in even the harshest environments. Cactus juice. It’ll quench ya.
