One of a series of quick sketches of tiny griffins… only while a “traditional” fantasy or mythological griffin is half eagle and half lion these little guys are made of smaller stuff. This shy little guy is half cardinal and half tabby.
The original drawing was for an Artist Trading Card exchange, and was 2.5×3.5 inches, drawn on vellum surface bristol paper with Micron pens and colored with watercolor pencils. This version has been isolated and recropped slightly from the original card.
