ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: WOOL

As soon as I saw this week's Illustration Friday topic I knew had to do something for it. Sheep are my favorite animal and yet I find them very difficult to draw.

I began with a simple sheep drawing and went from there. Originally I just wanted to do something iconic, with a lot of texture and no story. But I find that even when I try to create a story-less image I always end up craving some kind of indication of a possible narrative, so I turned it into a book cover and did one variation to expand its storytelling possibilities.
