The Annual Graphics Collection from Cape Dorset, Nunavut has been released since 1959 and features acclaimed graphic artists from the Arctic. From the beginning, Kananginak represented Arctic wildlife in his work, often monumental in scale. He was especially capable at drawing the many species of birds that frequent the Arctic. He had also done many memorable images illustrating the material culture of the Inuit, and narrative drawings of camp and hunting scenes. Kananginak died in 2010.
