A kid, smudged with dirt and ash, yet smiling from ear-to-ear, comes in from the field, dragging his ridiculously-huge find behind him. The mechanical dragon, with a look of guilt and submission, is tethered by a mere rope and a child's imagination. The question the boy asks of the viewer (in the doorway) is a simple one, "Can I keep him?" Basically, I took a B&W ink drawing I did in 2008 (of a mechanical dragon) and I built this from that. I changed the dragon's fierce facial expression to the one you see here, added the kid (who is full of character), created a background for them both, and everything else just fell into place. I hope you enjoy it!  :-)
