“A dragon is just one more stranger in search of a friend.”
– Helen Reddy, Pete’s Dragon.
Many times when I sit down to my sketchbook, my mind is a blank. I just start doodling until something springs forth. Thus was the case this time. However, I happened to have the soundtrack to Pete’s Dragon playing in the background, so my mind started wandering to thoughts of the large, yet friendly version of these beasts even though mine doesn’t have “the head of a camel” with “the neck of a crocodile.” Dragons are just a lot of fun to draw! Where the paddle and ball came from is anyone’s guess.
