Voyageur

Voyageu1_web

I have recently become interested in the romanticized existence of the voyageurs. Their life in reality was a brutal existence of never-ending servitude that often resulted in a broken human being. But if you take all the pain and strife out of it and think about getting to canoe all day it seems pretty cool. The truth is actually somewhere in the middle of these two statements. Either way, voyageurs are a fascinating stereotype and I have been drawing them lately.

more to come.

Your interpretation of a Voyageur is great, James. Let's see what else is flying around in that creative mind of yours! :)
