I carved this series of northern animals for my first book Lucky Hares and Itchy Bears. The book's editor, teamed me with Susan Ewing, a writer from Bozeman, MT, who became a close friend and collaborator of 23 years. Susan and I work fluidly together, responding to changes in each others writing and sketches.

 

My first drawings for the linocut Family Tree showed eagles building a nest. Then Susan sent me a revised poem for this page, and two eaglets had showed up! My eagle dropped the stick it was carrying, and picked up a fish to deliver to its two “feathered bowling pins.”
