Imagined Setting Descriptions for the Farlands in Oi Caveboy! (2017)
Using the text Oi Caveboy as a stimulus for writing, the protagonist Iggy is asked by his tribe (The Urks) to travel to the Far Lands to collect a plant that will heal the Chief of the Urks from a venomous snake bite. As a class we imagined, what the Far Lands might be like and used some images to help us develop some setting descriptions.
