As a kid of the 80's, dragons have always inspired me. Whether it was through movies, video games or dungeons, and dragons, these mythical beasts had an influence on my imagination. With this series of drawings, I wanted to show a different side of the animal.
Often dragons are depicted as villainous, treasure hoarding monsters but I wanted to break past the stereotypes and delve into the different personalities of each character. As far as the styling of the drawings themselves, I wanted to go for an old fashioned look of classic illustration, maybe even having a feel that they were sketched from life in some explorer's journal.
