Coyote Now: Connecting with Nature

Coyote Now: Connecting with Nature, 2016
Marker on bristol board. 44” x 28”

Coyote Now is in an invitation to engage with imaginative storytelling through the assertion that the Trickster, Coyote, has been a continuous player in both historical and everyday events. In this scene, Connecting with Nature, Coyote is taking a break from his busy modern life and enjoying a scenic view while camping. Despite his efforts to reconnect with nature, he can’t quite “disconnect” from the rest of the world. Meanwhile, his friend and sometimes nemesis, Mouse, the Sly One, is staging a raid of his provisions.
