Unicorn print , detail by Reptangle Unicorn print , detail by Reptangle
Unicorns were the essence of the early eighties. This is a detail of one of the scratch board ( also called "scraper board") Unicorn drawings I did. This was a line of prints published by Alberti Design.

Really? And here I thought it was just because it's a phase all little girls go through... Those textures are gorgeous. All the little details give it a Durer kind of feel.

Before the late 70'S, I don't think little girls went through that phase. People thought unicorns were weird, and kinda creepy before then.

Ah. So like Jim Henson movies I'll chalk it up to being a child of the era!

Now you're making me wonder what revived them from the late middle ages into the 70s of all times...

Fantasy as a genre' went nuts in the 70's. Before then, there really wasn't much mainstream fantasy in places like gift stores.
I think the Dungeons and dragons game had a lot to do with it.

Ah, as a kid a little later I kind of grew up with it as background imagery. Though I didn't read much as a teen (Terry Brooks put me off it until I was introduced to Gaiman and Pratchett in college) I always liked the art.
