Land of the Sleeping Giant

'Land of the Sleeping Giant', an illustration by Mat Miller.

Land of the Sleeping Giant

The bear bones (har-dee-har) of the drawing started with the idea of a sleeping panda that was a mixture of animal, rock and tree to try and reinforce the organic and ancient nature of the beast. I see the panda as a kind of protector of the land but has he been sleeping for too long?

I have also made a digital version which is now scoring in the Threadless x Wacom drawing challenge.

I used a brush pen, fine liners of varying size, coloured inks and watercolour on Bristol Board.
