JANUARY, FULL WOLF MOON

He stands about 8" tall, his body made of strips of batik fabric. His tail is fur.
I found an old fur coat at the charity store, in the trash bin because it had fallen apart and they couldn't sell it. I asked for the pieces. His face is a photograph from a free photography link, printed on fabric. Around his neck are strips of prayers for the safety and well being of the PEOPLE during the cold winter months.

  1. Oh wow! I love his face! And the batiks are perfect. I'm going cross-eyed trying to read the prayers on the strips around his neck. ;)
    I've taken numerous totem animal quizzes on the Internet, and a wolf is always among my animals, so I really enjoyed this month's challenge. I'm very eager to see everyone else's work, and mine is now on my blog at http://pinelandspatches.blogspot.com/

  3. Bea! Holy Crap!
    You Wolf rocks the joint!
    I had a nightmare last night about this project. I am not blaming you...it's just when I commit myself to something I DO IT!
    I have some real fur, too that I thought about using...a picture I wanted to transfer on to the canvas I can't figure out what I did with...AAARRGGGH! I am not a sewer...don't have a sewing machine, but I like to challenge myself...I AM getting this guy done. It WILL happen!
    If I could execute what is in my head...it would have looked like yours. eerie and true.
    But...my brain has to slow down to my skills...AND...the best way to finish is to begin.
    So no more nightmares, Lisa, this isn't high school.
    JUST DO IT!
    You don't mind, Bea, if I talk to myself on your blog, do you?
    Doesn't matter, now that it's done.

    Love you Bea!
    Hope I don't give YOU nightmares.

  4. His eyes say it all...he is keeping watch over his mistress. I wish I was making a doll now but I think I am more a fabric assemblage so keep posted because I am sending my photos in this week. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

  5. Lissssssssssssssssssaaaaa, remember what I said about not stressing about this challenge, that it was supposed to be fun and something that you wanted to do?
    Now, breathe.
    Again.
    Maybe you need to just draw your idea. Maybe, instead of trying to do it in fiber you need to do it with paint?
    Whatever you decide to do it will be just fine and all yours.
