A New Year

It has been a difficult year. My mother passed away at the end of February and the months prior to her death were filled with she and I coming to terms with her terminal cancer. Thank you everyone for visiting my blog and websites and your continuing support of my work. I plan on updating all my sites as soon as I can. Peace - Liz

Wolf Song: Cover In Progress

After many iterations I like the way this image is progressing. Now I need to make it work for the final size and add in the back of the cover.


Wolf Song: Wolf On The Path

This is a sample of one of the pages without copy from Wolf Song: Wolf On The Path double page spread. The original the image looked too static so I tried to make it more dynamic and show how the villagers think of the wolf in their minds - a hulking killer instead of a lonely, broken beast.

Wolf Song Rough Color Sketches


I am trying out some color sketches for Wolf Song. Good to be making some progress! This is just exploration work but I like the textures and moodiness I am getting from the acrylics and all sorts of mixed media.
