“Miss Smokey” by Diana Hart, Illustrated by Anthony Moravian

Miss Smokey Art

Diana Hart wrote “Miss Smokey,” when a heavily regulated a were-bear finds a job with the Forest Service, but when the Forest Service turns on her partner and mate, will she be able to save him?

Anthony Moravian describes his goal in the illustration as trying to capture “a chase scene which occurs after the protagonist is hunted mistakenly for a crime. I wanted to show the concern on her face as her pursuers close in.”

The concern, the look over the shoulder, shows the tearing of interests between the world the character knows and the lure of a world where she can be free to explore her true nature.
