Chasing the Dragon Illustration

We chase dragons all our lives whether we are conscious of it or not…

This illustration holds more significance to me than perhaps any other drawing I’ve rendered over the last few years. Maybe I shouldn’t sell it It signifies the turning point in one’s life where one must move forward and discontinue past follies and experience regardless of how difficult the emotions welling up inside may be. It can mean leaving jobs, changing where one lives or even ending relationships and being financially poor and emotionally destitute until the change happens.


It’s that time period in between the ending and the new beginning that Chasing the Dragon is all about. And you can buy it here.

This original measures 8″ by 10″ (20cm by 25cm) with a half inch border from where it had been taped to the board while I was painting it.

Chasing the Dragon is a mix of Windsor & Newton watercolour, Prismacolour pencil crayons and Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens on Arches cold press watercolour paper. All materials used are of the highest quality.

  1. Absolutely beautiful! It’s amazing what a difference the finishing touches have made. I just play with watercolors…I may have to look for the Prismatic pencils. Thanks for sharing.

    And…so true about chasing the dragon. We do all have our personal dragons…
