Catch it and RUN FOR YOUR LIFE

Thats the name of the book I have been working on... sort of. Its Catch it and Run an ojibwe tale. So I thought I would post some of my paintings.

So there they are in order. The story is about how the coyote hatched a brilliant plan to bring fire to the cold and starving ojibwe people. He enlisted the help of a few willing other animals and managed to do it.

The illustrations are mine but the story is not.

  1. This is so awesome! I can't believe I haven't seen any of this yet!
    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the one with the wolf and the frog. I think there is just so much wonderful contrast in that one, not to mention extraordinary details.
    If I may offer a suggestion? Perhaps brightening up the title page? Or darkening the black a bit more. :3
