Lynne's book.




Getting back into the swing of things. What a great book to start with. Easy subject. So rich. A lot of people are drawn to wolves and think about them often. The wolf must be the most attractive spirit-guide-type animal. I hardly ever think of wolves, though they are beloved here in Minnesota, USA. Their numbers had dwindled here and are now mostly restored. Northern Minnesota borders Canada, and is covered by forest and lakes. I guess I think more about ducks, raccoons, and elephants. When I do consider wolves, I think the most interesting thing about them is their pack instincts.

I wasn't sure what to draw at first. Eventually, I drew one of my greyhounds laying upside down, legs in the air. I thickened the body a bit, added fur and a wolf's head, but it needed a story. I went with the wolfboy, to follow Joyce's great wolfman.

Both animals dreaming.
