Last summer while I was an artist in residence on the Chilkoot Trail, I collaborated with participants in Skagway, Alaska, on the trail and in Whitehorse, Yukon to create a large scale comic map of the Chilkoot Trail.
We used black markers, white copy paper, scissors, and post-it notes to draw various elements of the Chilkoot Trail including trees, plants, rocks, buildings, animals, stories, people, machines, weather and more. These elements incorporated different time periods of the Chilkoot Trail (pre-historic, pre-contact, Klondike, present-day, the future) as well as different locations (in the air, on the ground, underground). We then placed the drawings on the larger map with two sided removable tape and rearranged them with other participants drawings. I then scanned all the drawings, added some colour digitally and posted the trail online.
