Christopher McCandless was an intelligent and educated young man who, after graduating in Atlanta, ran away from a life full of lies searching for his own truth. He destroyed his ID card and left his (wealthy parents') money behind to become Alexander Supertramp. First as a rubber tramp (= with a vehicle) until he lost his car in a flash flood, then as a leather tramp (= a hitch-hiker). He travelled West to the Californian desert and even explored a bit of Mexico (using a canoe). But as a Jack London fan, his dream was to go North to Alaska, which he did. He settled in a bus that had been turned into a shelter, and lived hunting, fishing and gathering while enjoying his favourite reads. Unfortunately, his stay was prolonged due to a river that he couldn't cross anymore (too much current), and game went scarce. With the help of an encyclopedia of local edible plants, he fed on berries, but made a mistake that proved fatal. He assumed that because the roots of one particular plant were edible, so were the seeds, but they intoxicated him and made him die of starvation. When he understood he was done for, he chose to leave his gun and ammunition where they were rather than shorten his suffering, and wrote a last note expressing his gratitude for having had a happy life despite everything. A journalist (who had an experience of adventure himself), Jon Krakauer, wrote a book on Chris McCandless's quest, called Into The Wild, and Sean Penn made it into a film (with the help of the McCandless family and some of the characters depicted in the movie). Thanks for your kind comment Carliss. :hug: :hug: :blowkiss: :cute:

Again, wonderful drawings! :clap: They show much of what I didn't understand on first seeing them. Great life to put into a story, but what a sad ending! It seems like he wasn't fully prepared to take on such a feat. Anyway, I hope it was fulfilling to him. I have to admire his bravery in not committing suicide with his gun. :whip: :whip:

Jon Krakauer's expert point of view is that as a young adventurer he was as prepared as could be. A sad ending indeed, but a very moving one. He made photos of his trip, including self-portraits, that he never saw developed. On the last one, where he is holding a farewell note, completely emaciated though he is, he is smiling. Thanks again dear friend. :hug: :blowkiss: :cute:

Chris McCandless is a young man who retreated from civilization and its lies to reconnect to nature and find his own truth. After travelling with his car for a while, he became a hitch-hiker and a "king of the road" (like in the cool Roger Miller song), making a few friends on his way. During a couple of years, stopping to work when he needed money, he travelled West to the Californian desert, South to the Mexican border (that he illegally briefly crossed), then North to Alaska that was his primary goal. There he found himself but, accidentally, found death intoxicating himself with the seeds of a plant that was supposed to be edible (only the roots were, but that wasn't stated in the reference book he used). Sean Penn made his story into a film. Thank you very much Bob :hug: :hug: :blowkiss: :blowkiss: :cute: :cute:

Ce dessin aussi a été un parcours. J'ai dessiné mes petites vignettes en commençant par la voiture, continué tout droit jusqu'au canoë de l'angle, enchaîné avec le rafting... et terminé par le bus. Ainsi, Into the Wild a été une aventure à raconter dans tous les sens de l'expression. Merci beaucoup Nicole :hug: :hug: :blowkiss: :blowkiss: :cute: :cute:

Je suis contente d'avoir trouvé par hasard comment sortir d'une panne d'inspiration pour ce jeu - en faisant une recherche google sur les aventuriers célèbres, en trouvant fortuitement un livre de poche sur Chris McCandless dans un rayon de beaux livres à offrir pour Noël (j'ai vu dans ce hasard une piste à suivre), et en me penchant tardivement (jusqu'à tomber dedans) sur une histoire qui m'intriguait déjà il y a 10 ans. Un plaisir que d'illustrer ce récit édifiant, surtout que j'ai bien cru ne pas y arriver. :sweat: Un grand merci Noël ! :hug: :hug: :hug: :blowkiss: :blowkiss: :blowkiss: :cute: :cute: :cute:

Juste utiliser un peu de noir, peut-être, ça améliorerait le contraste!!! c'est juste une conseil!!! :grin: :blowkiss:
