This image doesn’t have my usual signature or a date. But it’s likely that I created it around the late 1980’s.
At the time I was developing my own style for drawing tree bark. I used a modified version, with straighter lines and wider spacing, for rock faces. So this little dog was just there to give me an excuse to draw another tree:
For awhile I was heavily influenced by American Indian/First Nations artistry. I especially liked the use of heavy black lines to create almost a silhouette of an object or animal.
For the record, I would draw the image in pencil and then use Pigma ink markers to finish the artwork.
