A dragon for St David’s Day

March 1, 2014

Red Dragon - Art by Ian Miller - ian-miller.org

Ian Miller’s eldritch dragons graced the pages of David Day’s Tolkien Bestiary back in 1979. For me, there’s something uniquely compelling about their blend of organic, mechanical and purely geometrical morphology. I’ve often felt that dragons shouldn’t just be overgrown reptiles, but something more alien, something… Other. Miller makes that happen.

The red dragon above is one of the artist’s more recent works. You can see it and much more besides at Miller’s fantastic web site here.
