Duckland:
The Wingless Beast from Ingering

My drawing desk, today. I reworked the "Lindworm from Ingering" design, a wingless dragon-like beast from last year's Duckland show at the Kasematten theatre, for a new task.

Disney's LORCANA

I was, and still am, on the team of the Lorcana production (Ravensburger North America and Disney). This here was a personal piece I did upfront to the actual character work, warming myself up for the big adventure. I kind of slipped – in a metaphorical sense – into Mickey getting ready for the journey. LORCANA.COM

Especially big thanks to lead art director Matthew Eng for the guidance and support.
