He's kind of fun, this guy. I see your signature RA there. Does he have any (back) legs?

Such a beautiful dragon Roaux :) just wonder if you carved purposely with a “good guy” look instead of ferocious as per in the drawing

Hi Carlomagno. I just want to carve a dragon, not a feroce dragon. I used the drawing to the overall idea of a flying dragon, the global form. I like to give a good face to my subjects !!

Do you think of yourself as Edo, Osaka, Kyoto, Tsu, or Paris School? 8-)

Hi Chonchon. I think that a collector can say if my work is like Edo or Tsu school. I don t know very well all these different styles and I don t want to work like a x school. Perhaps one day people will talk about Clermont-gerrard school !! :D

Hi Roaux! If I ever saw a dragon, I would like it to be a friendly one! There is enough scary in this world of ours, we need to accentuate the positive! I like your happy dragon! I especially like his swirly antlers/horns? Thanks for sharing him with us!
