Quick 10 minute sketchbook work for college. The brief for this class was "Who do you think you are?", so base your work on your family history. Bit of a problem when you don't really know anything about your family history, (hence why I was going through census records a few weeks ago).
So because I consider myself Canadian, not Irish Canadian, just plain old Canadian, I thought I could use part of the history of Canada. There is a lot to Canadian history, so I decided to stick to researching about the First Nations people, their culture, art, basic history etc.
So I've started on the west coast, and plan on working my way East. I have always liked Northwest Coast art, and have been learning a lot about it and the artists that create it, its very interesting. People might get sick of me drawing totem poles all the time tho :p
