Artist's Description

Some years ago I experimented with depictions of the extinct thylacine, trying to capture the marsupial essence (especially the five forward pointing digits in their paws). The original plate (acrylic on board, 2002) has long since been lost; however, the scan survived; I lightly retouched it, and applied a soft canvas filter to help eliminate the surface imperfections.
.
This is the initial idea for the cover art of ‘Kangaroo Dog’ (2002), the first edition of the 2017 version ‘Tazzie Tales of Thylacine Secrets’. There are many photos online, both in black and white, and of taxidermy specimens in colour. This is my own rendition of how a mother thylacine and her pup might appear in the privacy of their hidden den somewhere in the Tasmanian wilderness. For the RedBubble version, text has been added.
