The Neighborhood’s Night – Page 10

Here’s the 8th illustration for the book project I just finished for Learning A-Z. Page 10 of The Neighborhood’s Night by Juliana Catherine.

This is the only close-up portrait in the story. The two moms are leaning in close together discussing what’s happened. They’re both tired and very worried.

This image is also used on the title page.

Bear and Coyote

And here’s something completely different.  Bear and Coyote. I think Coyote shouldn’t have stolen Bear’s fish. But Coyote, being the trickster he is, will get out of it somehow. smiley 15

Full Disclosure:
I should mention that, although this is in a tribal style with Native American folklore characters, I’m not a member of any indigenous nation.  I don’t want to mislead anyone into thinking I identify as a Native Artist.

I don’t plan to do any more in this style because I’m worried that it counts as cultural appropriation.  I did this one because I think the style is beautiful and I wanted to see what I could do with it.  I really like how it turned out and it’s my own idea and my own story, but it isn’t in a style I have a cultural connection with.  I don’t want to upset anyone and I can see how it might, so I’ll limit myself to just this one.
