More illustrations for White Pine - Due to be published in January 2014!
This illustration took some work. This is a Tomahawk or Axe Tossing game. Julie, the illustrator, and I weren't sure what this should look like. Our first image was of the stump set directly on the ground. My husband and Julie's son pointed out that no one throws axes directly down. Fair enough. Fortunately, Julie's son had played a version of this game at Boy Scout camp. We compared his recollection with some historical images and this drawing is what resulted.
