horse spirit

Horse energy continues swirling into all my cracks and crevices, sweeping out the cobwebs and dusting off old atlases. Including an invitation to help an artists collective build a giant fire pony (more on that later), and an illustration of a mysterious horse spirit for that same group (above). And I ended up here last week (below). I can't wait to see where this is going.

It's an absolutely beautiful illustration.

I know it's a horse and not a donkey, but this magical creature could have stepped out of A Midsummer Night's Dream . . . Exquisite!

Love the color palette, too. Very Arthur Rackham.

Thanks guys! I had a lot of fun mixing pen and ink and acrylic on this one. Working with an ink outline and layering like watercolor way speeds up the process.

I love the line work and the design! It reminds me a little of Arthur Rackham.
