Lately I have been working on the design of the book and the page layouts. I will be sending out samples to publishers next month to get some interest going, so I had to come up with the final look for the cover and insides of the book itself.  The text on the pages is not final, and a few details may change...but this is pretty much it. I am really happy with the way it is all coming together now!

The Wolf King Speaks...

“Well, Well, what have we here...a little white fox?” Mocked the Wolf King.

"I have heard the chatter of the creatures in the forest about you. White as the snow they say...quiet as a mouse. Tell me little fox, what brings you to my forest kingdom?”

In the Forest of Giants

Here we find Winter Fox on his way up Wolf Mountain to confront the infamous Wolf King. This is the picture before the Showdown illustration below. This shot gives us an idea of the creepy place the Wolf King and his army of wolves have made their home.

I really love cinematic shots that give you a good sense of the mood and drama that is happening in a film. Often times books overlook these elements, but it is stuff like this that I feel will make this book unique. I am trying to achieve the look of a classic animated film paused at key scenes.

Prologue: Adrift on an Iceberg

If anyone is still out there I finally had a chance to get more work done on the book. It has been sooooo busy lately but I am finally ready to get back to work on it. We are coming close to getting most of the illustrations done for this book! There is still so much to do, (editing, layout & design, Illustration cleanup) but I may just start sending this out to publishers soon!

Here we have the Prologue page where we meet a shadowy figure floating on an iceberg in the middle of the ocean. This is our narrator for the story, he will be taking us through the whole story...but who is he....

Advice from The Owl Sage

In the Owl Tree illustration it didn't look like there were any owls in that old tree...but finally one reveals himself. Winter Fox finally finds an animal that is old enough and wise enough to help him find a solution to the Wolf King problem...the wise old Owl Sage! He looks pretty good for a cranky old snowy owl huh? He may have the solution to beat the Wolf King...but is the solution more dangerous than facing the Wolf King himself? The fact that I made that last sentence a question indicates the answer is yes.
