This drawing is nearly 4 feet tall by 3 feet wide. And in my anxious rush, I completed it in exactly a week. It is entirely pencil on paper. And yes that is Charles Darwin riding a unicorn as a symbol of "The triumph of reason over fantasy and fallacy." you might also note the finches with various beak sizes, the slain dragon (it reads "Logic" on the handle) dodo birds (skeletal and living) and mermaids (skeletal and living.
I had a dream that this happened. Darwin rode up to me on a unicorn and told me that reason had triumphed. really.
bah, the photos are a bit blurry, especially when you enlarge them. This was very difficult to photograph! It is far better in person.
happy holidays! we're snowed in here!

This is a custom paper doll for the lovely Sharry whom I have worked with before. She is an amazing actress who has chosen to commemorate her role as Mrs. Meers in paper doll form! For those not familiar, Mrs. Meers is a character from the musical Thoroughly Modern Millie and a nefarious character at that!
Its a fun show set in one of my favorite eras (the 1920s) and was a delight to do!
