Land of the Sleeping Giant

by Mat Miller
DESCRIPTION

Using 100% woven polyester, these premium quality area rugs boast an exceptionally soft touch and high durability. Available in three versatile sizes (2' x 3', 3' x 5', 4' x 6') they are the perfect accent to any room in your home, featuring thousands of designs from your favorite artists on a subtle chevron pattern. Machine washable; non-skid pad not included.

ABOUT THE ART

The bear bones (har-dee-har) of the drawing started with the idea of a sleeping panda that was a mixture of animal, rock and tree to try and reinforce the organic and ancient nature of the beast. I see the panda as a kind of protector of the land but has he been sleeping for too long?

I have also made a digital version which is now scoring in the Threadless x Wacom drawing challenge. My drawing hand would appreciate any and all scores (preferably 5's if you're feeling generous) - https://www.threadless.com/designs/land-of-the-sleeping-giant

I used a brush pen, fine liners of varying size, coloured inks and watercolour on Bristol Board.

panda, kingfisher, snake, nature, mountain, trees
