‘It’s cold,’ I said.
‘And dark,’ said Pudgy Horse.
‘But,’ I added, cautiously, ‘there are those tiny points of light in the distance.’
‘Let us keep walking, then,’ said Pudgy.
One of a few recent drawings I didn’t quite get a chance to post. I’ll try to intersperse them along with work from The Nutcracker in the coming weeks. This drawing has now found a new home with the brilliant and much-beloved illustrator, Cory Godbey, who shared a picture of it on his Instagram.
You’l notice that my signature appears in the bottom left corner of the original but not in the scan. That was simply because I’d forgotten to sign it prior to scanning, then promptly forgot to re-scan the piece again before posting it off to Cory.
Pudgy Unicorn is available as a print from my Redbubble store.
Drawn yesterday for my friend Ingunn of Mosjøen, Norway, and for Charles Darwin (though mostly for the former, admittedly); they share a birthday. Pudgy Horse wishes a happy birthday by eating the cake. This sketch also handily becomes another piece for the Year of the Horse.
The plaited mane (because it was a special occasion) was drawn after the historic Lipizzan horses as painted by Johann Georg von Hamilton.
