Originally this card was a watercolour and ink drawing done on draughting film at a much larger size. The image is inspired by the James Thurber story of the man who saw a unicorn in his garden one morning, eating the flowers, a story his wife refused to believe... it is a darkly funny story.
Unicorns are much beloved creatures of ancient myth and fable, but there are plenty of occurrences in nature of single horned animals for the myth to have feet on the ground. The most widely associated creature with the idea of the unicorn is the Arabian Oryx, since the horns are so close together it only takes a view from a certain angle for them to look like a central horn. Another favourite single-horned creature of ours is the Narwal, which we have seen in Arctic waters looking white and full of drama.
For now this card comes cellophane wrapped, but this will alter as stocks change. They are blank to allow you to say whatever you would like to say. The accompanying envelope is white
