It was recommended that I check out the sketches of this artist, and am I ever glad for the tip! The sketches were pretty good, but the finished illustrations are very imaginative and ethereal. He really seems to connect with that fairy energy, and most of the poses and colours he used in his pieces capture that magical, other-worldly feeling you get in the pit of your stomach. He currently has a couple of books out, information on which you can find on his own sites. Links below.

This is his website, feel free to check out more of his work: http://www.art.zaprasza.eu/Author.php?user_id=78

And apparently you will do all of this while travelling with a wild pack of horses and will be able to ride a couple of different ones as the days pass. Sounds pretty amazing.
