This pencil study is of Maikan, a beautiful Grey Wolf that I knew well. I enjoyed interacting with her and in turn received many reference opportunities of her majestic poses for my paintings.

MAIKAN (May–kan) - A beautiful, female Grey Wolf born on April 15, 2002. At approximately 12 weeks old she came to Jungle Cat World Wildlife Park in Orono, Ontario, Canada from Park Omega in Montebello, Quebec. Maikin had the typical colours of the Grey Wolf. She was not hand raised so when she was introduced to her wolf pack at Jungle Cat World she adapted very well. She was always a little shy with people. Maikan passed away on July 16, 2012 of kidney failure. "She was such a beautiful Wolf, we miss her very much". - Christa Klose, President of Jungle Cat World.

About Michael Pape Giclée Limited Edition Prints
Giclée is a state of the art digital technology that has made it possible to create a fine art print that is extremely difficult to distinguish from the original painting or drawing. Giclées are available on archival acid free watercolour paper and or canvas. Michael Pape Giclées use pigment longevity inks and have a lifetime warranty. Each limited edition giclée is numbered and hand-signed by the artist. Read More
Giclée - Artist Proof Edition is a signed and numbered limited edition. An Artist Proof is the process of the artist manually matching the original painting colour to the limited edition giclée print colour. For example the pupil of an animals eye may be slightly darker on one Artist Proof than another. Each Artist Proof is slightly different in colour. An original if you will. Many artists charge a 20% premium because of this. Artist Proof Editions are usually limited to 10% (20 prints) of the Regular Edition (200 prints) for example. They are the most sought after limited edition by collectors.
Giclée - Regular Edition is a regular signed and numbered limited edition, based off the artist proof.
Giclée - Conservation / Publisher Proof Edition are what charities offer for Fundraising.
