Don Maitz acrylics on panel; image size 20" x 30" framed; cover to Dragons of DarknessAn unknowingly cursed baby is born unto the queen, and at the presentation ceremony in the throne room, the cute newborn begins a transformation and springs into the air growing wings and scales at an alarming rate. Flapping above the creature spits a deadly lava like wad at the queen, killing her instantly then releases a gush of flaming urine over the king on his throne. The artist made a small figure out of cloth wrapped on a wire armature and sat it on a balsa wood throne, then with the aid of lighter fuel set it ablaze while taking photos of the ensuing flames. Cover to Dragons of Darkness , a short story collection.
