Sketch for Shelter Dog design

Here is the initial pencil sketch for Shelter Dog design.  After sketching a few ideas I choose this sketch because of the powerful visual of the dogs waving butt and tail, then transferred the image to the linoleum block.  After looking at it for a while I added the mountains, trees, moon, and fire to make it feel like a complete camp scene.  It took about six hours in all to sketch, transfer image, and cut out relief on the block.  I inked three proofs before I got  the final art print.
