The Dire Wolf is the sigil of the Stark family in George RR Martin's 'Song of Ice and Fire' saga. And their motto is 'Winter is Coming.' A really great bunch of books that start with 'A Game of Thrones.' You really should go read them. Yes, I know they are thick books, but don't let that deter you. And by the time you read the first 3, book 4 should be published . . maybe. This guy was intended for a sweatshirt from cafepress but I decided I'd spent enough on xmas stuff. Drew it in my sketch book then scanned and vectorized in PSP 8. Haha! I have discovered the secret of one piece Celtic vector knots! I wish that last foot was a bit whiter but I'm tired or trying to get the gradient fill to play nice. For more great 'Game of Thrones' artwork check out Jenny Dolfen's page at http://elfwood.lysator.liu.se/loth/g/o/goldseven/wp_direwolves_col.jpg.html This is the pic that made me go read them.
