The Year of the Unicorn

I was excited to participate in the Year of the Unicorn 2015 calendar with this drawing (which became Mr. January). The Year of the Unicorn was a successful Kickstarter project that was launched by Matt Bryan.

For my entry I wanted to challenge some of the cliche queer connections made with unicorns by avoiding pink and rainbows, but also celebrate the queerness by shattering the unicorn's fence and chains. My drawing is based one of the famous Unicorn Tapestries that can be seen at The Cloisters in New York.
