Ibex-in-the-mountains-Eur-001

Operation Graphite began in February of 2012. This is now going on the forth year of the site, which is long time for a site that nobody looks at. This m0nth is also Chinese New Year, and the animal for the Chinese Zodiac of 2015 is the Goat. For all their Satanic associations, or mental images of dirty farm animals, I am kind of fond of goats. Perhaps it is the mountaineering aspects of them I find admirable. Even some domesticated goats are nimble climbers, and as someone who was always climbing anything and everything, I could see the noble characteristics in the Capra genus. Goats also have really weird eyes, which are kind of creepy, but give them a much wider field of vision that humans do.

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that fits the theme: Year of the Goat.

All art work is due on Thursday, 2.19.14 Submissions will be published the following Friday, 2.20.15
