Foxes in Autumn

It's officially the first day of autumn! This is my absolute favourite time of year and I can't wait to break out the cozy sweaters, boots and pumpkin spice scented everything! The signs of autumn are just beginning to show outside the window. The oak leaves are tinged with yellow, squirrels are scrambling to stock their winter stores, and there is just a hint of crisp coolness in the air.

The signs of autumn are also upon my worktable today. Russet apples, brown mushrooms, and berry brambles are finding their way into my illustration work lately, and foxes are taking over. The fox is such a symbol of this season with its red-orange coat flashing between the golds and browns of the hedges and its haunting call echoing through the trees at night.
