“Meles is here!” Cried the children when the Hirci arrived, a lute slung over his shoulder, and a sack of worldly goods by his side. “Meles is here!” Cried the adults when the Hirci arrived, with his eyes a-twinkle in delight.
Of all strangers in the known world, surely none were more welcome than Meles, for he is the Bard of the people. A wanderer at heart, he never stayed in one place too long, but when he did, the Hirce were glad and made ready a feast. And all night long Meles would strum his great lute, smile and sing for the people. A thousand songs Meles knew and created – and oh how he sang! His voice was as rich as honey, yet could be as thunderous as a storm or as soft as a bird’s breast, and even the adults would listen transfixed as he sang of the world, of stories and of ideas, of wisdom and of mirth.
The Bard of Lindoli travelled alone. Yet none would waylay him or block his path, for doom was great upon those that did! The elders whisper that Meles can calm all birds and beasts, and even trees bend low to hear – and if he were troubled, they came to his call. The children think that the kindly Bard is a god.
And what does Meles have to say about that?
He simply strums his lute, smiles with eyes so bright…and says nothing!
I always wanted to draw a bard. And goat satyrs. And look I'm drawing baby satyrs!
I basically started this on the subway, did most of it at the art meet, and then finished it at home. Ink on 8.5 x 11 paper.
(This is partial homage to the fact that I really like real bards)
Have you guys ever wanted to see how I look like?
Here we go!
A friend of mine was doing her final project for film school, a documentary. She proposed I be the subject to her group and it got a resounding yes so here is the fruit of their labour!
Hope you guys like it.
I am a traditional artist who is always interested in exploring new media combinations. With every work I do I strive to improve, and as a result my style is constantly evolving. I enjoy illustration, and my genres often dip into worlds of fantasy and science fiction. |
I don't just stick to drawing either. I'm also an avid cosplayer! Whether its sewing, propwork, (Oh yes prop work) makeup and/or acting, I love it! Each costume is a challenge because it makes me to try something I've never done before. If you ever see me in costume, feel free to stop on by and say hi! Maybe I'll draw you something if my arms aren't busy holding up wings. ;D
