Inspiration: A Dream Envisioned








My totempole came to me one night when I was watching a T.V. show about whales. This show wove a glorious tale about how whales evolved from large wolf like creatures that lived close to the ocean. I thought to myself...imagine going to the beach and seeing a pack of wolves the size of killer whales, you’d be like “holy crap look at the size of those wolves!” This was what we in the art business call a eureka moment..an epiphany so to speak. I immediately did a small sketch on the back of an old photo copy (I do a lot of drawing on the back of old photo copy’s, I hate to waste). So I had my sketch and it became the inspiration for my first totempole
