Talisman

Gargoyles are talismans for buildings. Possibly this one is suffering from insomnia.

I believe Spiderman had an evil foe based on a Gargoyle.

everytime I see one of your line drawings I want to pick up pen and paper.

LOve a good gargoyle, especially in line drawing..this one looks like he has something to say.

There is something sympathetic about this poor fellow. I think he’d like to have someone to chat with. Can’t be easy being a gargoyle.

I like the way you have the night swirling kinetically in the background.

He looks like he needs a little scratch behind the ear and maybe a bowl of warm plaster or concrete or whatever gargoyles sip when they are sleep-deprived...

jude said...

Squirrel said...

Insomnia? Yes it may fall off too.
Beautifully illustrated.

It looks like it's about ready to take off. I'd completely forgotten about gargoyles. I love the lines and the textures of this.

Tessa said...

I think they all do, actually. Excellent illo.

Love all your recent gargoyles. I just received your Ox… it's wonderful! And now you can say you have your work hanging in the Museum of Contemporary Art Jacksonville! Yes, it's in my office but I won't tell if you won't!
