Wolf Pattern 2 by Amy E. Fraser (1997) is an expressive, colorful, hand crafted, one of a kind, pen and ink, pattern design featuring wolves. The Wolf Pattern series was developed through the process of old school xerography. The final Wolf Pattern designs were completed with pen and ink, markers, paint markers and colored pencil in 1997 and then digitally updated in 2019 for your Print on Demand pleasure.

The Wolf Pattern series was part of Amy E. Fraser’s senior thesis project at Parsons School of Design where she explored Pagan, Feminist, Humanist and Womanist symbolism in her art. The wolf theme was heavily inspired by the book “Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype” written by Clarissa Pinkola Estés Ph.D.
“We know the soul-spirit can be injured, even maimed, but it is very nearly impossible to kill. You can dent the soul and bend it. You can hurt it and scar it. You can leave the marks of illness upon it, and scorch marks of fear. But it does not die, for it protected by La Loba...” ― Clarissa Pinkola Estés
FYI: Xerography, Xerox Art or Copy Art, is the time consuming, often tedious process where the artist is required to take numerous trips back and forth to the corner copy shop, drawing, cutting, layering, and repeating, until the pattern’s completion. Most people, (even smart young ladies who went to super fancy art schools) did not have regular access to computers, and quite frankly, wouldn’t have known what to do with a computer if they did. Back in 1997, there was no miraculous "make pattern" button available to the masses
