Wolves illustration – hand cut cartridge paper and tracing paper

I’ve been reading a novel that features a wolf recently.  It made me think that I must be overdue to pluck out Angela Carter’s “Bloody Chamber” again to read The Company of Wolves and it led to my head being filled with wolves and werewolves of all kinds.
