first few frames of a new hand drawn animation that iâm working on. in the distance to the left, silhouetted by stars is citadel hill, the area surrounding it was then called Kâjipuktuk, but now stands Halifax, the forest is replaced by condoâs and cranes. it doesnât really matter that weâve been pushed out of our beloved neighborhood.
