enough with the fairy tales already!

I tend to read and illustrate many western fables, such as the Grimm Brothers tales. So I decided it was time for ethnic stories from different parts of the world. Starting with an Inuit fable. So to fully understand the cutlure I read an awesome book by Peter Freuchen, a westerner who went and lived with the eskimo peoples and wrote about it. I loved every page of it! So here is the first illustration from a seperate, inuit story.
