The Man and the Satyr by Himmapaan The Man and the Satyr by Himmapaan
Aesop's The Man and the Satyr.

Pen & ink and watercolour, Pencil, Gouache highlights.
297x420mm
Christmas card, 2005.

This was reduced onto A4 card (210x297mm) and folded into thirds, concertina-wise. I had a hundred copies printed (then proceeded to measure, score and fold the things myself!). The cards were sent to family, friends, my publishers, agent, curators, etc. I think I sent them all and kept one copy for myself. I didn't get more than a tenth that number in return though... :)

What's the moral?

The moral is that good people will not associate with someone who say one thing and then it's total opposite without a thought.

Thanks for telling me that I would never guess that.

I never understood the moral of this fable. Why did the satyr even leave? I never got that..
