The best part about being an artist is that I can create my own world. I doubt owls actually wear striped tights, but I put them on this little guy because I love adding whimsical details. This king of the forest is among a bunch of fly agaric mushrooms. These red mushrooms with white scales are iconic in fairy tales. They always have gnomes sitting on them, or being used as houses. They are my favorite kind of mushroom to draw and paint.
The original illustration was hand painted with gold on the crown and the moon. In the options you can choose the standard print, or a print that has the crown and moon painted onto the paper.
