board that embodied my brand and gave a bit of insight into my
capabilities. I chose to make a dragon, a creature I look up to in
all its glory. My brand is Lizard Kidd, which exists to bring a bit
of magic to an all too real world.
board was my three-year artist block when I could only draw dragons.
This is a tribute to the end of my artist block. I feel as I walk along this earth, I am shaping who I was into whom I want to be. A transition of lizard-to-dragon is more than scales and wings, but a metamorphosis of mentality and perspective. A lizard
observes, skitters around and camouflages into its surroundings. But see, the mythical dragon is majestic: the dragon is strong and
spiritual, a creator and a destroyer. These traits are almost opposite, but can still attain each other, a transition between the real and unreal.

continued the process with wood burning to match the 3-D technique. I
then used watercolour to create a conceptual contrast of fire and
water in my material. I chose to place him sitting on the waterfall to
give the illusion of having control of a pure life source.
