Finding time appropriate outfits for the Europeans was unexpectedly difficult. Ultimately, paintings by Dutch masters ended up being an invaluable resource.

More pages from my sketchbooks. This time, some wicked-looking clubs from pre-gunpowder times. Also a pretty neat spoon, made from some tree bark.

Some pretty cool wolves from my sketchbooks. What’s that you say? There’s no wolves in Journey into Mohawk Country? You’re right. I had really wanted to put some in, but couldn’t find a place. I practiced drawing them a lot, though, just in case.

From my sketchbooks. Cool shot of a sitting Mohawk or Oneida.

I like this sketch of a rowing Mohawk. Another design that I’m sorry didn’t make it into the final book.
