His long reign of terror over the city of Paris,
spewing flames from the rooftop balcony of the Notre Dame cathedral, has the villagers fearing to go out after dark... and telling their children tales of the bloodthirsty dragon that preys upon wicked little boys and girls.
However, the beast is actually my own tuxedo cat, Dominic... in his fantasies
! I created this piece via photomanipulation, using a shot of the Notre Dame balcony courtesy of CAStock
, and this flame burst by SalsolaStock
, both members of Deviantart.com.
After being drawn with fairy wings and mermaid tails, Dominic was demanding a more powerful, masculine role that commanded awe and respect. Judging by how popular this artwork was upon its initial release, I think the monster was appeased. ;)
I print all my artwork at home in my studio, using a professional Epson giclee printer which uses water and fade resistant Ultrachrome pigment inks, for an archival reproduction that will last 90+ years.
Each print is hand-signed on the back by me, the artist, and dated with the original creation date.
I trim each print myself, leaving a small white border for easy framing.
(And watermarks you may see are solely for internet display, and are NOT featured on the actual prints)
Prints are shipped safely packaged in acid-free cellophane sleeves, with additional cardboard backing inside the mailer.
