When Sean said he had a werewolf story on the go, I knew immediately what I wanted to do for the illustration. Last spring, I photographed the full moon in a water filled ripple of sand on the beach and had been desperate for a reason to work with it. I found some reference images of wolf prints, sketched out the new pattern, addapted the reflection to work over the indents and there we had our transformation. Some things are just meant to be.
Additional image shows the work in progress and the final image, a sample illustration framed (the little figure in the bottom corner of the frame not included, that's the original Catmonkey who will be continuing his reign of terror from here).
It comes complete with a copy of the story by Sean Walter.
Worked in charcoal and Wolff's carbon pencils on Fabriano Artistico extra white paper. It's framed ready to ship in a smart black frame made using recycled materials and with acrylic safety glazing. Drawn area size 12" wide by 18" high, frame size 16" x 22".
