The Jackalantern

The name sake of this website! This is a painting of a Black Backed Jackal, but with a surreal twist.

Originally I had meant to create a series of animal pun paintings, but it later evolved into a candle theme. Others in this series include an Owl, a Ground Squirrel, and more.

The Jacklantern roams the desert at night, searching for lost travelers. It will lead these lost souls to places of safety.
