The Wolverine was completed on 3.10.2010. I've been drawing a lot of the medium-sized and larger land mammals of the Americas recently. There was quite a lot of excitement recently when a wolverine entered California for the first time in nearly 100 years. Seemed like a sign and I cranked out this drawing. It is based on a photo by Peter Edin.
The Wolverine is the largest land-dwelling member of the Mustelidae or weasel family. It is the only species classified in the genus Gulo (which means "Glutton"). It is a powerful, stocky predator that will fiercely defend it's kill against larger animals such as bears or wolves. It is native to the remote boreal forests and alpine tundra of the northern hemisphere. Because the animal requires a large range they have a very low population density. Due to habitat loss, trapping and hunting the wolverine's numbers have been in steady decline for decades. Although, recently a lone wolverine was spotted in the US state of California where one hadn't been officially recorded in 90 years. The wolverine is the official state animal of Michigan.
