Illustrated in the style of a vintage Edwardian or Victorian photograph. This image is part of my 'Anicurio' collection. Each original illustration is carefully hand drawn in pencil. Once finished, I often hand age and treat them with various dye methods, to resemble an old dusty antique photograph. I want this series to suggest something that was rediscovered by you. An inherited artifact from a mysterious benefactor? Or perhaps revealed in a long abandoned attic, lying at the bottom of a chest. Buried beneath old dusty clothes and fading hand written notes.

Character biography of this daper peacock:
Lord Charles P. Carrion, born near Stratford-upon-Avon, England, in 1904, was by all accounts, a scholarly child. Shunning the typical trappings and distractions of his peers, Carrion chose instead to study and read books. Avidly devouring major works on astronomy, chemistry and physics. It is said that his aptitude and early academic achievements, and not his pedigree, helped usher him into Cambridge University,
Spending his Cambridge years in the company of professors rather than students, Lord Carrion wrote many well regarded papers. Several were accepted within scientific circles as being both enlightening and ground breaking.
Upon leaving Cambridge, Carrion was much sort after. Turning down invitations to become a lecturer at many scientific establishments and universities. However, much to the surprise of all who knew him, he instead announced that he planned to write a series of science fiction novels. All based on the premise of visiting other worlds within our solar system.
The first of these, titled: Captain Peacock and the lost tribes of Mars, was a minor hit. Spurred on by this, he swiftly followed with “Captain Peacock and the many moons of Saturn. Sadly, this second novel in what was intended to be a complete series of the adventures of ‘Captain Peacock’, had poor sales. Consequently, his publisher abandoned him. Lord Carrion spun into a long depression and little is known of him for the next several years.
However, Good fortune returned, when he was offered a role as a voice actor in an early radio show called ‘The Rascal gang’. His character ‘Charlie’ became beloved to young listeners everywhere across Great Britain. ‘Charlie’ helped to launch his acting career into several popular quiz and game shows. Lord Charles P. Carrion eventually went on to host his own radio talk show, where he would invite guests from all walks of life, including the theater, novelists, scientists and academia from his Cambridge past.
