Natasha Donovan talks about ‘Borders’ graphic novel and more

Natasha is a Métis illustrator, originally from Vancouver, who specializes in comics and children’s books. Her illustrations have appeared in The Other Side: An Anthology of Queer Paranormal Romance, the Mothers of Xsan series by Brett Huson and the graphic novel Wonderful Women of History published by DC.  Her most recent project is the graphic novel Borders.

Borders, from Little, Brown and Company, is based on a short story by Thomas King in 1993 about about a boy and his mother who try to take a road trip from Alberta to Salt Lake City. When they reach the American Canadian border, they identify as Blackfoot — causing problems and putting the pair in limbo between Canada and America. What unfolds is a powerful story about justice, identity and belonging.
