year of the dragon 1 by duss005 year of the dragon 1 by duss005
my contribution to this yearís Monsterís and Dames book for the Emerald City show in March/April ( [link] ). Books can be purchased there and profits raise money for the Seattle Childrenís Hospital.

2012, being the Year of the Dragon, so iíll probably have a theme of this going throughout the year in celebration.

11 x 17 watercolor on board

Hey! Just got this in Monsters and Dames at ECCC! Thanks for signing my copy! I always enjoy seeing your updates, and I'm so glad you could contribute to the book this year! Children's Hospital fixed my cleft palette, so I'm happy to contribute to them.

That's my hometown con! I can't wait for the show. I also spent a lot of time at Seattle Children's Hospital growing up, so I'd love to get a copy of this year's Monsters and Dames book. Seeing this, only makes me want to get one even more! Beautiful work!

Great job! Too bad the convention is a bit far from Europe. I couldn't find a link to buy the book via Internet :(

The contrast in color makes it such a maddening and wonderful. Also, the design and patterns within the dragon is splendid!

I dig the more gentle lines of the woman and the more dramatic ink of the dragon in contrast.
