Second of the set of full page illustrations painted for a Middle Grade fantasy book titled The Sorcerer's Dog. It' an unusual story with many themes that are not very often present in books addressed to the young readers, including a depression in young people.
In this scene, it's already late in the night and the boy's room becomes witness to a very strange occurrence. When a magical portal materializes and a gateway to another dimension opens up, an unexpected visitor steps into the room, his figure casting shadow on the floor, and he immediately knows he has finally found what he has been looking for a long while now...
All illustrations are painted on 16 in x 12 in paper with watercolours, gouache and rendered with coloured pencil.
