The King & His Crown

Title: The King & His Crown Artist: Jesse Van Horne Year: 2014 Media: Ink & Colored Pencil on Vellum 11"x17"

This project came about when my good friend Marissa approached me for a tattoo design. After multiple attempts and renditions it all coalesced perfectly with this final image.

The King & His Crown is a tribute to the stately species Alces alces, more commonly known as the Moose. The crown of antlers that the male of this species wears at maturity can weigh as much as the average human. Imagine walking through the woods all day with that on your head!

I love all the different directions that my work takes me, I don't think I would have ever created this on my own, so a big thanks to Marissa for giving me the chance to execute this beauty! More to come.
