New Canadian Aboriginal Art Comic Book Soon to be Released

Soon to be released is a new Canadian Aboriginal art comic book addressing Aboriginal youth suicide prevention. It’s the story of a Canadian Aboriginal reserve teen who feels socially isolated and has difficulty at school. Even with his artistic talent and help from a good friend, the young man considers taking his own life. The story was inspired, written and illustrated by Steve Sanderson, a professional Canadian Aboriginal youth cartoonist. Health professionals and Canadian Aboriginal youth focus groups in B.C., Canada helped create the authentic characters and language.

This is a great idea indeed. In the meantime, we can see more traditional forms of Canadian Aboriginal Art at Free Spirit Gallery.
