This is an image from the story of Sinbad the Sailor. In one of Sinbad's many adventures he finds a vast canyon in which the floor is littered with diamonds. He discovers soon that this treasure is guarded by enormous bird-monsters called Rocs, and he is soon snatched up by one and taken to its nest. To find out what happens after that you'll have to read the rest of the story yourself, it's very exciting. This is the moment before Sinbad is grabbed by the Roc. Sumi ink, charcoal, white acrylic and ballpoint pen. I know the piece is a weird shape, but it kept growing so i just added new pieces of paper as I saw fit.
