Inspired by the documentary BEING CARIBOU, this drawing is an ode to the legendary migration of northern BC's caribou, now facing extinction numbers. Their migration is a journey of epic proportions - traversing a large geographical area, hosting a variety of environmental habitats, each different from the next and each presenting catastrophic challenges. ON CARIBOU TIME speaks to the time it takes for this incredible species to complete its migratory route.
