Darian and Kuari

You know, I never set out to becoem any of the characters I wrote or illustrated. This just kind of happens to me sometimes.
Misty & I did three books about this young man and the Tayledras bodbird owl that is part of his life. Years later, my owl Cheyenne is entrusted to me by a master falconer.
I don't look this butch in real life.
And I DEFINITELY wear a thick glove to handle Cheyenne.
And a shirt.
And hair gel. C'mon, Darian, I mean, really.
