This drawing was made to raise money for a school for autistic children in Houston. The theme for the event at the Westview School is Arabian Nights so I decided to draw an Arabian horse so that it is in keeping with the theme.
It is a 22 x 30 inch graphite and conté drawing.
I named the piece Djinn because of the desert spirits of Arab folklore. They have freewill, just like humans, and are made of a smokeless flame (or the fire of wind). Djinn can metamorphose into a variety of animals.
