This is something a little different for me. A friend was talking about getting a tattoo of St. Christopher with a dog’s head, which I’d never heard of. So I went online (thank goodness for the Internet!) and started reading up on it. The story I found seemed to beg for illustration. I mean, seriously, a guy who’s 7 1/2 feet tall with a dog’s head – how can you not want draw it? So I started with the pivotal scene.
This is all graphite, some mixed with alcohol to form paint, the rest in pencils and sticks.
