This illustration in based on the old superstition that when a dog howls death is near. I did the original with acrylic and colored pencil on illustration board. I wasn’t 100% satisfied with it and a colleague suggested I make the moon smaller and higher in the sky so it didn’t take so much attention away from Death and the dog. So scanned it and did some digital manipulation and painting to fix the issues for the final illustration. This illustration is now available on my art shop as Limited Edition Giclée Prints, see the link at the bottom of the page.
