My piece for the 2014 Werewolf Calendar! I was able to write my own caption this year, and idea that's been brewing for a while now. I've always disliked the idea in our culture that the elderly are not interesting or valuable anymore once they become elderly. It's not something I agree with, as my grandparents and great grandparents have always been VERY valuable, interesting, and loved. They have wisdom and experience to draw from that the younger of us shouldn't brush off. I thought it would be really interesting to illustrate that in werewolf form for the next calendar!
Orders for the calendar are now open! Check out the website for ordering info - www.werewolfcalendar.com
"A werewolf that reaches advanced age takes an honored place in a pack. Even if they are not an alpha, they are highly valued by every member. With their experience and wisdom, they are excellent advisers to all, leaders and pups alike. An elder werewolf is responsible for passing down pack traditions and the stories of generations before, and often the officiators of important ceremonies. During a typical story telling session, an elder might use one of their scars as a launch point for a story, with all rapt in attention as the tale unfolds."
