Illustration Friday: VOICE

This week's Illustration Friday topic is VOICE. One of the things discussed in the illustrator's panel at the recent SCBWI NY conference was reaction -- that how the supporting characters react to the main character really helps tell the story. So I'm trying it out here! What if you're the first wolf pup among your friends to finally take the plunge and start a-howling?

I've also been wanting to do a wolf image since going to Wolf Hollow in Ipswich, MA many months ago. The alpha wolf there had recently passed away and since the alpha leads the pack in howling, there hadn't been any wolf howls for a while. I recently received a FB update that there was finally a new alpha and the howling is back.

  1. I really love the color work in this piece. I enjoy seeing the wolves' reactions as well. I think it does make a difference in the story-telling.


I love reading your feedback, thanks so much for commenting!
