This is actually a slightly older piece of mine, dating from 2001. Somehow I still manage to appreciate it.
I have always been intrigued by deer; their grace, delicate forms, and ability to blend into the forest are traits I have always admired. I loved them and drew them as a child nearly as much as I drew horses (i.e. the perpetual favorite animal of many young girls).
I have also been interested in the mythic associations of deer and with the tales of Deer Woman.....
Where the White Stag Runs
Deer Woman - two wonderful essays on the subject! The medium is largely black ballpoint pen with pen and ink for details.
