More Zodiacs

Due to popular demand, I thought I'd post some more of my Zodiac calendar drawings (including Leo, HB!)

First is my brother the humanitarian Aquarius...


...then Leo (based on Ilana), the energetic multi-tasker...


...my friend Yasmine, the passionate and determined Scorpio...


...and the warm-hearted Taurus (that's you, chancha)!

I love the texture on these pictures. And the ghostly flowers and trees on the paper is a nice effect.

I'm afraid I fail as a Leo if "Energetic" and "Multi-Tasker" are common traits :)

Thanks J! I like playing around with texture to make a mood more earthy/celestial (yes, at the same time...!)

Not to worry about your Leo traits, because JUST LIKE YOU Leos are also creative, enthusiastic, warm-hearted, faithful and loving! Yay!

Fran, I actually went and looked your blogs up today too, but I didn't think to post until I saw yours on mine. I love Michael's laneway drawings; do they exist in a format that he'd ever exhibit? And I'm really happy we crossed paths again. I'd love to run into you again... without a 15-year time lag!

Hey Fran. I'm a leo. I was born in the summer of 86'. I absolutely love your Leo painting. I also have a best friend who is also a leo. What I mostly love about Us Leos, is how we are can be hurt in the worst kind of way, and yet we are quick to feel angry, and fast to forgive. I feel Leo's are brave, creative, individuals who aren't shallow or stubborn, although some Leo's carry a big ego.

I would definitely buy that calendar! Gorgeous images.

I love these zodiac illustrations. Please let me know if you mass produce them. I would love to by them for my nieces and nephew. Stumbled upon your website after being a long fan of your ayurvedic blog. Beautiful work.

Thanks Camille and Rebecca! I'll certainly post if I make these in a selling format. Definitely a possibility -- thanks for your enthusiasm! :-)

Hello there. I absolutely love the way you're depicting the zodiac symbols. It's such a fresh new look for astrology. I especially love the Aquarius illustration. I'm Aquarius and I think you nailed it perfectly...and you didn't even have to show the cliche of the "water-bearer". Awesome collection.
