Badger & Coyote’s curious partnership illustrated

My first book illustration!

A friend of mine asked me to do sketches to illustrate her prose about the curious partnership between badgers and coyotes. This was quite a challenge but I worked to keep the sketches simple as this phenomenon, noted originally in American Indian folklore, is rarely seen by humans so images are scarce. Much had to be imagined to place them together and on the Columbia Plateau in our region of the Pacific Northwest.
