Greg loves sketching in his spare time. This sketch is part of a series of dragons Greg drew for his own pleasure. This illustration has been interpreted in multiple ways. Some see the Dragon as a protector of the ship, guiding it through raging storms and fierce seas. Others, see the ship as a protector from the Dragon–guarding the wild oceans from more wild beasts.
This illustration is a beautiful, rare moment where Greg has allowed his imagination to run free just because he can. It is a peak into a world that exists in the artist's mind, and this drawing is the window to that world.
