Murphy - Gold Rush Dog

Peachtree Publishers

Second book in the 'Dog Chronicles' series by author Alison Hart. Again we view historical events through the eyes of a dog. This time it is the Alaska gold rush and the hero is Murphy, a former sled dog.

I tried using  a wash with carbon pencils and while I liked the originals the reproduction suffered somewhat.

 

• Original image: carbon pencil and wash on illustration board.
