The Cremation of Sam Mcgee

Share

Here's one of those rare times i want to share a class project. The basis was not to draw a character, but rather create an environment that tells the story of the character. It's also intended to function as four separate images stacked on top of each other.

The Cremation of Sam Mcgee is a poem by Robert Service talking about a Tennessee man dying in the Yukon and his last request was to be cremated, which his partner does when he discovers an abandoned boat along Lake Laberge. They also mention how it's the first time Sam has been warm since he left Tennessee. As an Alabamian living in Canada, I can relate so well to this.. lol

A great work! Maybe it's just me, but I hadn't really guessed the boat was burning untill I red the description. It looked more like there is someone starting a fireplace or so.

Tektyx responds:

Oh I guess I could have clarified that better, but the cremation is actually happening inside a furnace, it didn't actually burn down the boat. ^^;

Love the style.

That's an interesting motif :D!
Great job ;)
