THE WEDDING OF FRAU FOX
I did this piece for a group show with a Grimm Brothers Fairy tale theme. In preparing for the show, I stumbled on a fairy tale I had never read before, "Frau Fox." Basically, a widowed Fox will not marry until she finds another fox to mate with. I found it a fascinating look into the xenophobia and racism built into European culture. So, here is the the wedding portrait I envisioned. This illustration is colored pen and ink on a stained wood panel.
