Topographical puppy

from sketch to completion

Taking a little break from cartooning to do some illustrations.  My boyfriend and I recently took the dog team out and completed a mush into Gates of the Arctic National Park.  During the trip I was thinking about the land we were running over and how hard the dogs work to cross all the miles.  I wanted to depict that onto the dogs so I thought of topographical lines within a body.  I chose Zelda ’cause she’s the smallest, but she doesn’t ever let size get in her way.
