Badger (2021), Photoshop

About Badger the spirit teacher

Badger can help you unearth mysteries buried deep within and without. He can root out problems and solutions. A gruff personality with a tenacious. He prefers to keep to himself, but you can build a relationship with him with time and effort. 

About the art

This portrait of Badger was created between May and July 2021. The original is a digital piece created in Photoshop. Inspired by my spiritual work with Badger as an animal spirit teacher. 

About the artist

I am Wolf Saanen, an animist artist from Dumbarton, Scotland. I create bold and vibrant animal spirit portraits using digital and traditional media. I primarily use Photoshop, but I enjoy working with lino prints, acrylics and ink too. I am inspired by my animistic practice; I want everyone to share in the beauty and magic of the natural world, and perhaps make their own connections.

This week on Twitch…

Hello m’dears and m’deers!

Did you know I stream my art sessions on Twitch? You can find me as littlewolfgoat, and I stream on Mondays, Tuesdays. Thursdays and Fridays from 10 am to about noon (depending on my health). It’s a chill stream; you can ask me anything (though I might not answer!), and just create along with me.

This week I have been working on an entry for a Valentine’s e-card contest hosted by OneKind (an animal welfare charity I used to volunteer for). Nothing exciting, it’s going to be a female Roe Deer with the words “I love you deerly”.

I thought it was cute!

Anyways, here is a slideshow of my work in progress so far, totalling about 7 hours work.

Collab with Den & Ink

(2011) Digital illustration.

I was delighted when Den & Ink asked me if I wanted to collaborate with her. She is such a talented illustrator, and to share a canvas with her was wonderful.

The plan was simple; there was no plan. All we did was pass this drawing back and forth. It grew organically into this amazing piece.

I had a lot of fun, and we’ll be doing this again soon.

Bullet Journal Cover: January 2021

Hello m’dears and dears!

On today’s Twitch livestream I made this monthly page for my bullet journal, and I would like to make it available to you too. 

Today is the Winter Solstice. While I was outside waiting for dawn to break, I was visited by some very strong (yet gentle) Bear energy. He just had to feature on this page of my journal. 

If you use this in your journal, I would love to see photos!

I hope you all have a magical day!

Leafy boi v2

“Leafy Boi 2” 2020

Digital illustration.

I just found out about these leafy bois, and they are adorable! They are a species of sea slug nicknamed the “sea sheep”. These tiny wee critters are not only pretty, but they can photosynthesise.

I will be making improvements to this sketch in a few days.
