The National Museum of Wildlife Art, in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, invited 65 artists to illustrate portions of Ernest Thompson Seton’s story Silverspot, the Story of a Crow. The resulting artwork was exhibited at the museum and printed as a graphic novel. I illustrated the following line from the story:
“They know that an umbrella is not a gun, and they can count up to six, which is fair for young crows, though Silverspot can go up nearly to thirty.”
This composition came together on the 78th thumbnail.
Good thing I didn’t stop at 50!
