The Marjane Satrapi of the Canadian Timber Industry
All hail Bus Griffiths, the creator of Now You're Logging, surely the finest graphic novel about logging ever published. As this profile attests, he remains hearty and opinionated at 91.
Griffiths' achievement is worth noting because I can't imagine anyone a generation beyond Griffiths' likely to have the combination of life experience, necessary skills and most importantly a natural orientation towards comics to create a book like this -- a similar effort would now much more likely be a short film or even a webcomic. Now You're Logging has been compared to a Western, which is appropriate in that the United States equivalent to Griffith is probably the cowboy cartoonist, another vanishing breed.
