A little sketch! I see War of 1812 stuff everywhere this summer because it's the 200th anniversary. It's cool and interesting! But, a side effect from that war is that sometimes Canadians try to be jerks about it. For whatever reason. War sucks! Don't be jerks.

I recently had a comic printed in the Guardian's Cartoonist's Worldview special, along with some really awesome people! Check out all the comics on that link. Mine was almost a reaction to reading this article (we were given the assignment some time ago but it's only printed now), and the almost absurd idea that any politician would endorse the idea that they're bullied or weak. What did anyone expect from a debate like that? I tell ya.

If merchandise isn't for you but you would like to support Hark! A Vagrant, you can do that here. Thanks for reading!
