I had the pleasure to make a design for the Portland chamber music ensemble, The Waking Guild. They were inspired by my Brementown Musicians and wanted something that reflected their own group members. They specified black and white and the animals and instruments they wanted. Funny enough, my current book dummy project also includes a bear, a goat, and a raccoon. I drew the piece in 5 parts so as to get the most detail out of the animals, and then I arranged the pieces in photoshop.

The final background gave them a sylvan setting for their merry gathering. I changed the stance of the bear in the end.
