This is part 1 of 12 in a series.  This year I decided my goal would be to make one new, full-size illustration each month.  This one is for January.  It took me much longer than I thought...

My idea is to illustrate the months themselves with a representative gryphon (because they're my favorite) and birth month items.  Here I chose to create a great horned owl and grey wolf gryphon and chose garnet, firs, and snowdrops from among the various January birth items.  Stay tuned for a blog post that goes into more detail about this piece and its meanings and symbols :3

Ink, Inktense pencils, acrylic, gouache, and marker on cold press watercolor paper, 9x12"

Thank you very much! I have worked hard over a great many years (even longer than my time here with deviantART) to hone my art skills, so your comment is particularly encouraging!

Thank you!  This is the first full piece I used my Inktense pencils on.  I received them for Christmas last year and had never heard of them before then.  It turns out they are what I always wanted regular watercolor pencils to be!
