Ayla Kreelak’s Smidge and Friends Returns

We have previously mentioned Nunavut’s young cartoonist Ayla Kreelak
and her comic strip Smidge and Friends who got a short run in The Nunatsiaq News.

The strip was popular enough to warrant a return engagement.

Smidge and Friends, an original comic strip drawn by Baker Lake artist Ayla Kreelak, has returned. Nunatsiaq News will publish a series of these comics throughout the spring.

Most impressive is young Ayla’s development as a cartoonist over her two years of creating comics.
