As part of their Wolf Inside exhibition about the origins of domestic animals (for which I also did this lovely thing) National Museum Wales asked me to do some simple line illustrations of a wolf along with various dog breeds for a children’s workshop. I gladly obliged. Here they are! As per usual, the dogs were drawn in pencil (copied from an enormous book on breeds I got from the local library), inked up, scanned and cleaned up. The dogs are daschund, standard poodle, chihuahua, West Highland terrier, greyhound, jack russell, and old English sheepdog. You can click for a bigger version.
