Page of Pentacles by Aldistar
Page of Pentacles
The Page of Pentacles:
I created the Page of Pentacles as a side show barker. First and foremost, Pages are bringers of information, so I thought the idea of him calling out to passers by to let them know the sights they were missing inside the tent was ideal.

The Page of Pentacles stands alone wearing a unique hat and a freshly blossomed flower in the band. Behind him to his right is a freak show poster showing the Monkey Man perched in fruit bearing banana trees. To his left is a poster of the Scarecrow Man and a freshly furrowed field that promises an abundant harvest. The Page is completely unaware of anything around him except the gold coin in his hands. The bright sky above suggests all is well and he begins to realize that the coin in his grasp can open doors for him. It is a dawning realization of the path towards prosperity.
Kelpie by Aldistar
The Kelpie is a shape shifting water spirit in Scotland. Usually the spirit appears as a beautiful horse but can also take human form. The legends say that they would lure children to the water and once you touched the creature you would be stuck fast and then taken to the bottom of the lake. Whenever a kelpie's tail touches the water a loud boom of thunder would sound and they were know to warn of oncoming storms.

Aldistar's Profile Picture
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I have been drawing forever and love to do it. My passion is wildlife and super-hero/fantasy art. I graduated from the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art in 2002 and have slowly but surely worked my way into several ongoing projects.

Photography is my second passion and many of my art works are fueled by images that I have captured with my trusty Canon.

Current Residence: Texas
Favourite genre of music: 80's
Favourite photographer: most of the guys/gals from National Geographic
Favourite style of art: fantasy
Personal Quote: It is my experience that people who never listen are often surprised by the completely obvious.

Member of the Grapevine Art Project (GAP)
