The Wolf is Coming

Much of my childhood was spent in and around nature and forests, where you could creep close to roe deer, see an owl and find animal tracks. The debate on whether or not to allow wolves to return to the Danish countryside has inspired this large inkpen drawing. In its creation, 6 layers of marker pen were used, this helps to give the work a real sense of depth. The black markerpen can also create many different nuances and it makes a marked contrast to the real world outside the tower.” – Hanne Biben Mortensen
