Dancing Alligator by Lynnette Shelley

This is an older artwork of mine (from 2006) that I had forgotten about but some people seem to take a shine to.

Created with felt tip pen and gold paint pen on recycled paper.

Having a great love animals, fairytales, and world mythology, Pennsylvania artist Lynnette Shelley fuses these influences into her strikingly unique illustrations. Her artwork strikes a primal chord in many viewers, with almost Jungian associations to the colors and shapes. Her artworks have been likened to images from an undiscovered ancient civilization or culture.

    I love your artwork. I really never liked the celtic design until I viwed your stuff. Really quite good.

  • Thank you Lenora. I don’t do “strict” Celtic work per se, but it is definitely a big influence. There are a lot of cool designs out there. Check out my group 21st Century Celts sometime.
