"Legendary" - Day 5 of 7 - for Illustration Friday
Day 5 of 7 - The topic for Illustration Friday this week is "Legendary".
This week I am posting a new "Legendary" themed illustration everyday for all 7 days!
Legend #5 - St. Patrick casting the snakes out of Ireland.
Happy St. Patrick's day everyone! In my efforts to come up with something unique for today's illustration I dug into a little bit of the history of St. Patrick. According to legend St. Patrick chased all of the snakes out of Ireland. Technically I suppose this is more of a myth because it is considered a metaphor for converting pagans and Druids to Catholicism and "chasing" them from Ireland. I don't take a particular moral or religious point of view on this. I just thought it would make for a compelling "Legendary" illustration on this holiday.
Be sure to stop back tomorrow for another extraordinary legend!
Thanks for playin' along everybody!
