"Tina," Ink & Marker on 8 1/2" x 11" Bristol, $45
The inspiration for this one came from an odd place. Somehow I remember a cartoon I saw about 25 years ago, printed on a notepad. It depicted a shaggy, skinny, roughed-up looking wolf or coyote, and was captioned "It's Been a Great Year!" A few of you may even remember seeing it. Somehow, that seemed relevant, and became a foundation for this piece.
