Capricorn

Capricorn ~ Ink and graphite.   Capricorn is the tenth astrological sign in the Tropical Zodiac ( birth date from Dec. 22 to Jan. 21 ) It is an introvert sign, earth sign and one of the four cardinal signs.  This sign is ruled by the planet Saturn.  The sign is often depicted as a goat with a fish tail, and usually as a male. One myth says that when the goat-god Pan was attacked by the monster Typhon, he dove into the Nile; the parts above the water remained a goat, but those under the water transformed into a fish. However, I’ve chosen to represent the sign as a female sea goat.

I'm in an independent artist who works mainly with ink and graphite, as well as other traditional mediums. My main focus could be described as something in between surrealism and fantasy, with some representational work based on mythology and various religious themes.
