Fairy Tale October Original Pieces
In 2018, I did the October Art Challenge again, this time with the specific theme of Slavic Folklore! There are only two pieces left from this challenge: The Dandy and The Szlachta. Once they’re gone, they’re gone!
A staple of 19th century Eastern European literature, this gentleman whittles away his time on the pursuit of pleasure and beauty–but beneath the carefree exterior lurks a lack of purpose that he must ultimately reckon with to grow up!
Szlachta were a class of legally-privileged nobility in Poland, roughly equivalent to knights in Western Europe. Why does this gentleman look so sad? Perhaps a dragon is laying waste to his land? Perhaps his princess is in another castle? It’s hard to say–you’ll have to ask him!
