Feast of FieldsSean Karemaker
A graphic biography of the artist’s mother who grew up in an orphanage in Denmark abandoned by her mother who suffered from paranoid schizophrenia. Karemaker weaves between her story in the past and their present in the Pacific Northwest in a truly unique visual and narrative experience. The book is a tribute to the qualities of selflessness, sacrifice and love associated with motherhood but will also resonate to anyone familiar with immigration to Canada, poverty, or mental illness. Karemaker’s first book The Ghosts We Know was heralded as “elevating the form” of comics.
