Covid Art 84: Horizon Profiles
As a child, I used to thumb through my parents’ collection of Horizon Magazine filled with essays on art and culture. I had to give away their 10 year collection when I moved but I kept two issues for nostalgic reasons. I committed the unpardonable sin of cutting up a page when I saw these Goya-esque drawings of parrots/parakeets with their Renaissance human counterparts. It inspired the doodle while I was reacquainting myself with pen and ink in March 2020. Now I see a duck on wheels but while I was drawing, I had no such intention.
