Larry MacDougall is probably my favoritist illustrator of the contemporary faerie enchantment genre, and he and his wife are enjoying the posts of Wallace Tripp's work (as many of us are), and I dedicate past, present and future Tripp posts to them.
As indicated in his drawing, Tripp used Michel Colombe's 1508 bas relief of St. George and his dragon as a moment of parody. Ha! Baa relief indeed.
Colombe's work was the marble altarpiece for the high chapel in the Chateau de Gaillon, since removed to the Louvre in Paris.

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
