Avalkis is an animal with the features of a deer and a dragon from my Springbringer fantasy world. The first sketch was drawn in a forest. I often find animals, creatures and beings in tree branches, stumps, leaves, clouds, puddles of water—in the fractals of nature and other random visual formations.
The colored one is is a pastel drawing. This is kind of a self-portrait in a way and my alias is Avalkis which I’m using as an artist name in certain publications such as music.
Etching 24×12 cm (Kangastusten virta in Finnish). 6 made with varying colors (some are black and white). This scene is from an upcoming Narcosis the Cat Meets the Flapsticks comic book story Flapsticks in the Land of the Pyramids. It tells about the legend of a Horse of the Troika – three giant horses worshipped by the people of Ee-Gypt.
In this artwork the birds from top center gradually transform into mountains and finally as flying dragons. The labyrinth on top right symbolizes the sun. “Corner sun” is my favorite motif in naive works.
Labyrinths and dungeons are one of my favorite themes – both in real life. We like to find caves and tunnels and wander in them with my friend Kriku who also does f.ex. psychedelic art.
