Ashtree house hails from the Great White North as one of Drunk Duck's Canadian ducks. She is best known on the site for creating the webcomic Steel and Manitou, which was featured nearly one year ago on February 18, 2015. Steel and Manitou tells the tale of a young girl named Kassidy Kerr, who is raised by a traveling troupe of performers. The tale draws inspiration from the Cree, Ojibwe, and Assiniboine peoples and has a Western theme.

A master at drawing digital line art and coloring, ashtree house's art always has that very clean inking lines and a very professional feel.

Ashtree house has a penchant for running, rabbits, and drawing spirit animals in the form of a white horse.

Please check out ashtree house's awesome comic on Drunk Duck!

Steel and Manitou

"Kassidy Kerr is an actress in a traveling troupe of performers who journey across the notorious and dangerous ‘Outlands’. One day, Kassidy meets a horse spirit (even though she says she does not believe in such things.) On that same day her beloved mentor and friend; a Nehiyaw woman named Vox, is brutally murdered. Are the two connected? If Kassidy wants to finds out, she might have to take a little break from show biz… Loosely based on oral traditions from Cree, Ojibwe, and Assiniboine peoples. Western/Fantasy/Adventure and some romance. Rated teen (blood, violence, mild language) Updates weekly."

@Hippievan- I currently live in Vancouver, but grew up in Saskatchewan and all my family still lives there. Def a prairie girl at heart!

Somehow I've never read ashtree's comic! It sounds like it's drawing inspiration from the place where I grew up, which is really intriguing (maybe we live in the same area of Canada? ashtree, are you a prairie girl too?).
