About the design:

I had been mulling over the idea of a sleeping dragon for some time, but had never decided what to use as a background. Fallen leaves seemed like a good substitute for a hoard of golden treasure, and more environmentally friendly. But, how to make leaves look like leaves beneath the immensity of a dragon? Then, I thought of making him more of a dragonfly, sleeping on only one leaf. My friend and creative consultant, Beth, spent some time gathering likely looking maple leaves from her yard and I sifted through them for one of just the right, comfy shape, and here we are, a dragon settling in for a short nap with a fallen leaf for a sleeping bag.
