DESCRIPTION

Talk about steely good looks. In addition to a 360-degree wraparound design, our metal travel mugs are crafted with lightweight stainless steel - so they're pretty much indestructible. Plus, they're double-walled to keep drinks hot (or cold), fit in almost any size cup holder and are easy to clean.

ABOUT THE ART

This is part of my ongoing series "Lost Zoo" about the recently extinct animals. Here I depcit the Honshu Wolf, native to the Kyushu region in Japan that was also known as Dog of the Mountain. The last known Honshu wolf was shot in 1905, but there had been reports of sightings since then. It is said by some people that the Honshu wolf isn't extinct, but very good in hiding in the wilderness of the Japanese mountains.

The Honshu wolf was due to possible island dwarfism the tiniest known wolf subspecies.
