Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Kelpie. About 9”x15”. Ink with digital colour.
I guess this piece is kind of about the things you can’t see that are hidden under the surface. A Kelpie is a shape shifting creature that most often appears in the form of a horse. It lures people to ride on its back and then rushes back into the water and drowns them.
Have to give credit to Tithe by Holly Black for causing me to forever associate carousel horses with Kelpies. Book had a big influence on me when I was 13, eight years later and I’ve finally made some related art.
