I did this as a commission for a friend who was stationed in Alaska at the time. Years later, he sent me this photo at my request.
It occurred to me that gryphons can be successful in most climates with a very few adaptations. This fellow seems to have taken most of his Darwinian notes from the snow leopard and the snowy owl.
The hare might need to take his Darwinian notes from a snowmobile to get out of this situation!
This was created in Prismacolor pencil and gouache on acid-free matboard. The camera flash has lightened the gryphon's wing a great deal, but I'm glad to have this copy!
