Book Jacket Illustration!

For my "Riel to Nationhood : A History of the Metis People" class, we were to illustrate a reissued version of the Palliser Expedition in the perspective of Peter Erasmus, one of Palliser's guide and interpreter. My idea came from reading several chapters from Buffalo Days and Nights, where upon their journey, low on rations, they finally caught one trout to feed six men. The imagery was quite powerful. I'm quite happy with the result:

Close-up of the trout, which is my favourite part.

On another note, I'm almost done my thesis! Which will be posted soon!
