This opportunist fox is from a story I wrote in the summer, all about a bear who can foretell the weather by observing nature. His old fashioned ways are challenged by the arrival of the fox and his cut-price sombreros, but there is a terrible price to pay.
I had great fun writing the story but feedback from publishers so far is that – although they like the story and characters – weather just doesn’t sell. What a shame! I used my oak gall ink to draw the fox, and a mix of coloured pencils and watercolour – I’m really enjoying working non-digitally at the moment.
