Queen Elk

One of my close friends works outdoors teaching kids how to be wild in safe ways, and yesterday she posted a picture of herself with mud all over her face and twigs in her hair. She does this for a job, and is basically everyone’s hero/idol. She knows what plants you can eat, and what plants are totally great to wipe your butt on (for real). Last week I learned she can make rope out of anything. When I saw her after work selfie I got totally inspired and created this:


I’m getting pretty jazzed about the idea of a girl in the wild, and I’m hoping my friend can add her vast knowledge of the natural world to make this more than just a sketch! Until then, I will keep playing with this new ‘toy’!
