Character sketches for Teddy Roosevelt's werewolf- for the book "You're On Your Way, Teddy Roosevelt" written by Judith St. George, illus.d by me and publ.d by Phylomel. Teddy used to have nightmares that coincided with asthma attacks. The nightmares  involved a werewolf. I thought the idea that a werewolf was showing up nightly in Teddy's dreams was scary enough for readers so, through this sketch process, I explored designing a werewolf that... approachable.  Amiable even. But still creepy. Pencil, 2003.
