Brian Kesinger’s charming collection of pen-and-ink dragon portraits obliterates winged-serpent stereotypes with its fun and fantastic portrayal of these magnificent creatures at their informal best.
There are no cookie-cutter fantasy cliches to be found here… just candid studies of dozens of the world’s most wonderful dragons with their individual personalities on display. An authentic and insightful glimpse into the little-known realities of being a dragon.
The toned-paper sketchbook format of this handsome volume presents expertly drafted monochromatic drawings of the dragons along with their names and descriptions of their unique qualities. Characters like Fynlar the Daring, Gorung the Skittish, and So’kee the Vegetarian will delight readers of all ages.
The cover of Penned Dragons features head-turning lenticular art that brings Brian Kesinger’s sketch of Koga the flightless kite-flying dragon to life, and serves as a nod to his two decades as a contributing artist on some of the world’s most famous animated motion pictures.
