This was drawn as a book cover for the first book of a pair of stories. The publisher specifically didn't want a 'cute' dragon but something along the lines of a moody cat. If you rubbed this one's head he might be pleased or he might rake your arm open. the story tells of a magician who is murdered. Here is his pet dragon who is about to set out for revenge. Kinda cute isn't it?
Taken from the Art book Alien Horizons, compiling the best of Bob Eggleton's art.
