Capricorn

A commission for a national summer reading program with the theme "Make Waves at Your Library" -- they wanted a big god rising from the sea, and since I do animals much better than humans, I persuaded them to take Capricorn the sea-goat instead of Neptune or something like that. Now that it's actually out in the library, I can post it here!

Compositionally this was a throwback to the old days when I did a lot of cover art--the top had to be dead space for text, and I had to put in so much bleed on the waves that Capricorn looks smaller than he actually came out on the printed posters. (The old skills you learn are never wasted...) Still, came out pretty well, I've gotten lots of great feedback from librarians across the country.

Can't do prints of this one, as it's licensed elsewhere.
