Surviving With Bone and Antler

Back in civilization, absorbing warmth, eating and drinking at will, and back at work on "Wilderness Survival for Dummies", due out in July 2009. I'm doing a lot of illustrations for this book, as well as half the text, and the workload is staggering...but that's alright. I've wanted to draw these things, and write these words, for as long as I can remember. Above, a panel of illustrations on how to make tools from bone and antler. Although some explanatory text is needed, what I want to do in a future project is a manual that's about 99% pictures and only 1% text. Though I value words, I think a lot can be communicated--and learned--by simple and informative illustrations.
