A Girl and Her Dragon

Artist Leesha Hannigan often delves into fantasy realms in her work, but we especially love this touching image of a girl holding her dragon. The piece, titled “The Quiet of a Beating Heart”, calls up a lot of questions in one simple image: is the dragon hurt? Has he been in a fight? Or is he blood-spattered from feeding? What are the herbs the girl is carrying? Does this girl have the Official Tor.com Dream Job of DRAGON VETERINARIAN? And if so, does she need an apprentice?

We promise not to tickle them while they’re sleeping.
