Where were you?



"Where were you when I was young?"

Painted this last spring, but it was on display in the Illustration Department this fall. I got it back a few weeks ago and thought i would finally scan it and throw it up here for lack of any new pieces.

This is a scene from the Last Unicorn, the novel by Peter S. Beagle. It has nothing to do with the film, or animated representation of the characters. The painting was supposed to represent a "late arrival" and i thought it fit well with this scene and particularly Molly's speech.

I'm also a big fan of unicorns, and the virgin/unicorn allegory's so when i get a chance, i like to make them subjects of my work.

Any comments about this not looking like the film will be ignored or deleted if they are particularly bothersome.

I'm not sure how i feel about open acrylics, i never used them again after this project.

Oh my god you did this moment in a painting. It's my favorite moment in that movie, and that is my favorite movie from childhood. Thank you!!
