A mini documentary on sex trafficking of Native women, with particular focus on Minnesota (Native women & girls are frequently sold on the shipping boats that travel around the Lakes, and have been for decades).

"People don’t see Native American women as humans. They see them as punching bags. Or something novel, like a new toy—it’s fun at first, but afterwards you throw it away." —Sarah El Fakahany, Sexual Assault Advocate at Minnesota Indian Women’s Resource Center

This is very sad, I didn’t know that the Native American women and girls were part of sex trade and prostitution.

it is a very big problem, much bigger than many people realize or want to admit, even among Native communities. if you go to a truck stop anywhere near tribal communities late at night, you will see young Native girls who have been trafficked. Minnesota, Arizona, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Oregon, & Washington are particularly bad. here’s some more resources on sex trafficking of Native women:

I drew this on a live stream! It’s a redraw of the original Horus comic which inspired the whole graphic novel.

Even though Pantheon: The Heavenly Cow is a prequel and essentially the first chapter of the full graphic novel, the first page of it is actually page 10. I’ve included parts of the Egyptian creation story in the book too.

These are pages 5 to 7 of Pantheon. 

The Ancient Egyptians had many creation stories over the years and some varied from region to region. I’ve settled on the version told in the city of Heliopolis and included the shared elements from the other versions. Some versions don’t have the lotus emerging from the mound but when I read the version that did, I knew I wanted to draw it. This is the way I wrote the script of Pantheon - I read the different versions and settled on the common elements plus what would be nice visually.

Archaeologists Uncover Lost Population of Ancient Amarna

It remained a mystery for decades.

Since archaeologist F.Ll. Griffith’s excavations in the 1920’s at the ancient site of the pharaoh Akhenaten’s short-lived new capital city of Akhetaten (modern Amarna), archaeologists have been puzzled about the whereabouts of the remains of the city’s commoner population – the people who toiled to build and maintain Akhenaten’s sacred edifices and infrastructure — and more specifically, the estimated 6,000 people who died during the short 15-year period of the city’s construction and development.

“A will-of-the-wisp, the dream of a rich unplundered cemetery of the middle classes at El-Amarneh, full of choice vases and amulets, beckons to each successive explorer,” wrote Griffith in the report for his 1923 excavation season.* Read more.
