Listen to Mr. Wolf
This particular design came about because I have always liked wolves, and one day I was walking around my neighborhood and saw a gorgeous hat, which, as you can all see, was shaped as a wolf. I couldn't afford it so I did the next best thing your average struggling illustrator does: put it on paper! It also reflects on an internal struggle within the character and can be well seen in the color palette.
