one night i just couldn't help listening to the last unicorns song 'in the sea' over and over again, i always loved that song, but it had never touched me as it did that night. i painted all of the lyrics into a picture, the narwhales, the unicorn, the birds, the flying fish... every single word had to be part of it... and... 'go and ask the magpie, where do unicorns go'...

i found quite some mistakes afterwards, like the feet of the magpie, the feet of the unicorn and such, but all in all i'm really happy with the picture. it turned out just like i imagined, and every feeling about the song is wrapped in it. i love it).

coloured pencils. (2005)

I have always loved the move and the songs and now that i have this pic on my ipod everything goes together. I think u did great and i hope u make more pictures of The Last Unicorn1. As I come to the end of my comment all i have to say are four things. One, my dog just grunted in my ear. Two, if u read the book (which u might have. u would know that there is a second book. i forget wat the tittle is called but i have heard that it is good1). Third, i love two other pics u made and the are also on my ipod they’re called Athena and Avalon1. the last thing i have to say is PLZ PLZ PLZ WRITE BACK! thx for ur time.15

:-) Stephanie S. K. Marbach replies: "dear half unicorn - what can i say - wow, thank you so much for your wonderful comment and for your time - it means a lot to me2!!! ah, i haven’t gotten round into reading the book yet but thanks, i had no clue there was a second one... i’ll surely check that one out, too2 so how’s your dog doing;-)? hope not still grunting;-) i’m really honoured that you like the pics so much you put them into your ipod... wow...2 glad i can make people happy2 and if anyone asks who drew those pictures - make sure to give me credit and send them onto my page for suggestions and comments;-)! thanks again & take care2"
