On the day that magic died
Did the fairies all explode in a puff of golden dust?
Did the fauns dream a dream of wood and leaves and bark?
Did the goblins think thoughts of stone?
On the day that magic died.

Original size 70 x 50 cm

Started as one my my "dreamscapes", just scribbling until something started to appear, then refined that. And the whole time I had this little "poem" going through my mind

EDIT: (August 2011) now that I finally have a good scanner I could replace the file with something that looks a lot closer to the original!

I had never heard of this gallery, sorry! :P
I am inspired by things like French graphic novels, Arthur Rackham, Alan Lee or the Pre Raphaelites. Nowhere as good as these but trying hard!

Ohwow, amazing! I love the effect of movement and the colours. It reminds me of an abalone shell - so many facets of colour that blend all in all to look beautiful :heart:
