The Fantastic Mr. Fox

This painting was created for an exhibit celebrating Roald Dahl at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto. The artists were asked make art inspired by but not from their favourite Roald Dhal book. This is a mugshot of Mr. Fox three years after the book takes place and after being nabbed by the Police on charges of grand theft poultry. Digital painting. 4'x3'.
