christmas 2012: "der weiße wolf"
did this small wolf drawing for my girlfriend (fineliner on paper). i drew it inside the book "der weiße wolf" (= "the white wolf"), which she received as a gift. childhood memories and i still love that book today. it is a fantastic fable with beautiful b&w drawings inside, similar to the style i've chosen here. it wasn't easy to get the first edition of that book since it's out of print now. the new version come with a really ugly "trash cover" but what's actually much more worse: without any drawings inside. after i received and sent back that trash version, i finally managed to get the original first edition from 1982/83 in mint condition (the same version my mom read to me as a child). i read it to her from time to time after waking up at the weekends... awesome flashbacks!
