Tessa Chan – Avian Scroll

Artist: Tessa Chan
Title: Avian Scroll
Media: Ink
Grade: 12th grade
School: Acalanes High School
Teacher: Robert Porter

I love drawing imaginary animals! This avian creature is inspired by Chinese dragons. Along the side of the painting, I wrote in a made-up language belonging to an imaginary world where these creatures exist. I drew a loose pencil sketch of the creature’s shape then free-handed the ink details. I bought this scroll to mount it on. I also affixed wooden knobs to the scroll so that it would have handles.
