Mouse Guard Alphabet Book – “M” full-page illustration
9″x9″, Watercolour and acryla gouache on Arches 140lb cold press paper.
“M” full-page illustration painted for the Mouse Guard Alphabet Book. Painted for “Matriarch”, this portrait of Gwendolyn is one of my favourite paintings for the book. Gwendolyn is smart, loyal, resourceful, diplomatic, and brave – all qualities that I admire and wanted to pay homage to. I wanted to show her in all of her queenly glory, a courageous leader for turbulent times.
