Illustration Friday...Fortune


Illustration Friday...Fortune

Graphite Pencil

This week's theme for Illustration Friday was "Fortune". I had a really hard time thinking of something to go along with the theme. One symbol of Good Fortune in Korea is the bat. Sometimes symbols like this are carved in the the roof tiles. This is the closest thing I could find to a bat (The middle section carvings represent a bat). Also, there is a dragon in the upper right hand tile. Dragons are also a symbol of good luck here. I may be stretching it, but it was kind of fun to draw anyway.
