This is one of the illustrations that I created for my Dad's book, "Kootenay Bears". It is a pencil and charcoal drawing of a grizzly bear who seemed to be admiring the sunrise during one of my father's hunts. The book is a collection of short stories about bear encounters that my Dad has experienced. There are black and white pencil/pen/and charcoal illustrations throughout the book. While the encounters may have raised adrenaline and hairs on the back of my father's neck, they have been recounted and told with humour.
