Edinburgh has only made the feeblest of attempts at a proper winter this year so I’m having to get my snow fix from drawing it, and drawing it a LOT. Next year I’m moving to Canada!

This comic has been inspired by my obsessive watching lately of ‘Life Below Zero’ – a documentary about people living in Alaska – on Netflix. My inner misanthropist (not so inner really) loves the idea of living alone in a cabin in the far far north, with a wood stove and a sauna and lots of books. My inner realist on the other hand knows that I wouldn’t be able to kill an animal and would therefore starve/be eaten by bears in about three minutes. So I’m having to content myself with daydreaming and drawing comics about it instead! Click on the image if you want to see it a bit closer up.
