|Leviathans, pen, watercolor & acrylic ink on watercolor paper, 7 x 10", 2011.|
Leviathans are giant sea monsters usually depicted as whales. I based mine on angler fish because they look way more monstrous than whales... even the really scary one in Pinocchio. Angler fish aren't huge in real life, so I added the buildings for scale.
I'm still painting the ink over wet watercolor on all of the pages, so they don't get too stiff looking. I actually like how the ink bleed on top of the fish to the right's head; it looks like a leviathan crown!
