    Incredible work George. LOVE the detail! How long does something like this take you to do?

  • It was done in 1984 and if memory serves I believe it was about three eight hour days. This is an abbreviated version as I had to crop the print to scan and upload it.

    This is gorgeous. Very magical. I am amazed for I have only seen the writer in you. This is a very nice surprise to find that you have more than a writer’s talent.

  • Actually, I joined RB to upload and showcase my art, but somehow I just got more interested in writing. I don’t really have the means to upload sharp enough images to make prints to sell. I went to printers and Office Max etc. to see about having my work scanned and put to a disc and they want an arm and a leg to do it. I’d like to know how all the other artists here are doing it cost effectively.
    Thank you for your comment and compliment, Iris.

    So beautiful. It’s like an illustration of a fairy tale!

  • I like your fairy tale analogy for I felt the same while drawing this. Thanx.
