This drawing has some similarities to an oddity of my grandmother's that I have always coveted.
What she has is this small wooden stage with a large carved moon looming over some twisted woods. On the stage stand a variety of strange animals with human legs. The figures are only flat painted cutouts of wood with stands but they have a magic that makes them seem very real. I am inexorably drawn to this sort of magic. To the point where my only goal in life is to re-create it.
