Happy Birthday (to me!) by Ana Cláudia Marques

 

Happy Birthday Jack by Ana Cláudia Marques

Look at the beautiful colors in this dragon, which is actually called Happy Birthday Jack, by Brazillian professional artist Ana Cláudia Marques, posting on deviantart as acla13.   She has a gallery full of more wonderful cartoon, comic, and fan art that you can check out as well — she’s particularly fond of Smurfs, by the look of it. 🙂

Ana created this piece for the birthday of a friend of hers, fellow deviantartist jshapeshifter, “inspired by his awesome creations,” and you can see his gallery here.

Since today is my own birthday — I’m “30-something” and will be for awhile now, I think! — I wanted to find a pretty dragon birthday piece to celebrate the occasion, and I think Ana’s work here fits the bill nicely.

As a gift to myself, I’m going to sit down for a few hours of uninterrupted writing time after work today, and I’ll hopefully be able to deliver the missing Neeka chapter from last week for you tonight, so stay tuned!

Here’s one more piece from Ana’s gallery, simply called Dragon, that I really loved.  Enjoy everyone, and stay creative!
