Project Statement

by L. Carré

Woodsman Pete is a collection of short comic stories about a Hermit who lives in the woods. He reflects upon his own history to the point that it begins to distort itself, as he carries on wandering conversations with his furniture, the natural environment around him, and most frequently with his bear rug, whom he calls Philippe. This is the first installment of three self-published mini-comics, which were eventually collected and published as a book in 2006.
