About

Welcome, Friends and Fellow Travelers! 

Patreon provides me with a unique opportunity to share my travel experiences, drawings, writing, photography, comics, even works-in-progress.

In the fall of 2013, Island of Memory — the first volume of my graphic novel, WILD MAN: The Natural History of Georg Wilhelm Steller was published by Floating World Comics. I am currently at work on Volume Two: Sea of Time. I’m also working on a series of illustrated essays exploring intersections of culture and ecology in western North America.


Developing WILD MAN has been a life-changing experience; I've been provided with research, lecture, and travel opportunities throughout every corner of North America. I’ve been invited to talk with audiences in Russia and Germany. I am currently working with University of Alaska - Anchorage translators who've shared exclusive access to previously unpublished Steller journal material with me.

Comics/graphic novels are an exciting and emergent 21st century medium serving as an essential tool to stimulate and enlighten modern readers. Illustrated narratives like WILD MAN demonstrate the modern relevance of historical cultural events and traditional knowledge, as well as ecological issues throughout the globe.

Connecting human experience to nature through art + narrative is a process of working towards goals of understanding.

Whether it is spirit or science, trial or travel, politics or pop culture, narratives guide our understanding with each other and with our world. Stories preserve as they transform us. They can empower us to change the world. And I want to change the world with stories, to inspire others to preserve, to sustain, to restore, to recover.

Together we make all of this possible. 

I crank out my work because I believe in all of this and your support keeps my nose to the daily writing + drawing grindstone.

I hope my work sufficiently demonstrates the gratitude my words are incapable of articulating.

Let’s get there together.

Always,
T Edward Bak
