Yes Virginia, if you know where to look, you can find a ridiculous bargain for a nickel! This reminds me a teeny bit of one of three extremely worn Dr. Seuss tomes from my distant youth: Thidwick, the Big-Hearted Moose. Increasingly larger creatures gathered relentlessly on poor Thidwick's antlers until finally he shed them and the animals all tumbled to the ground.
Cedwyk, the extremely long-nosed fellow on the left, was the first to arrive this morning. He comes most mornings for a one-to-two-hour rest. As the part-time caretaker for a gaggle of small, unruly goat-beasts he finds the resting tree an essential part of his routine.
Myrna, the orangey spotted critter at the top right, is recently returned from an epic adventure involving a distant cave with mysterious pink hieroglyphics. She is writing a thesis on her journey so she was thrilled to find this resting tree to re-charge before beginning chapter sixteen.
The pink bird is a mystery. He doesn't speak a language anyone has been able to decipher quite yet. He didn't pay with a nickel, but with a beautiful green stone that turns warm in the hand.
This drawing (and most of my original art) is the result of continued experimentation with fine line and Copic markers. The colors are terrifically rich but they may not be exact because monitors are not perfect! I was extremely happy with this drawing, which was done shortly before the Dragon's Tear, my other recent favorite:
I hope this drawing will eventually make it into a storybook. (Please do not copy any of the text without permission!)
This is an original one-of-a-kind drawing, approximately 9" x 11" and made with Copic archival quality markers and fine line pens. The paper is a nice stiff Canson 150 lb. smooth drawing paper. The second photo shows the drawing in a standard mat for an 8" x 10" drawing, and as you can see it crops nicely for that purpose. Mat not included with purchase. The shop name does not appear on the artwork.
It can be signed in the bottom right on the front, or on the back, your choice! If you do not specify, it will be signed on the front (in teeny script). This original work will be carefully shipped in an acid free plastic sleeve and sturdy flat mailer.
Artist retains right to image (and I will probably make prints). Thank you!
