Drawn & Quoted: Prey Before a Meal

“It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him.”

– J.R.R. Tolkien (1892 – 1973)


As I continue to add creations to my sketchbook, various beasts and creatures continue to come forth. This dragon oozed out of my pencil unexpectedly with that mean, hungry and determined expression. Decided the sweet little bird would be the focus of his attention. It’s never any fun being the prey.  All you can hope for is to choke the aggressor.
