Hunting the Buck

Hunting the Buck

The illustration is based around a short story/comic I wrote about an imaginary land where a small village survives by hunting these huge creatures called Waterbuck. To become a man you must capture a waterbuck with the boys who you grew up with. I wanted to give the idea of this tale being told to the boys of the village but in the way that I was told stories by my grandparents as a child, short and exciting. On any journey there is a lot of monotony and nothing happens for most of it but it's the exciting bits which get told. I also wanted there to a be a sense of repetition with the story being retold by one of the boys as an old man.
