The Hermit’s Return

by Matthew Spencer

Descending with the dawn from his alpine hut, this reclusive goat’s return to town marks the beginning of solstice celebrations for the court of Winter.

Inspired by sunlight glistening off snowy boughs, the majesty of dawn in the mountains, and by the jewel-like fruit of evergreens.

Painted in watercolor, gouache, and colored pencil on 140lb Arches hot press paper. Accented with gold ink.

The artwork is framed in cream and gold.

Matthew Spencer is a queer illustrator from southeast Michigan.

He works primarily in ink, watercolor and gouache (often embellished with metal leaf), creating pieces inspired by folklore, history, and nature.

Outside of his freelance work, he has been slowly but surely been illustrating his own tarot deck. The Courtly Beasts Tarot- along with a good deal of Matthew’s other personal work- depicts a fantastical world populated by anthropomorphic animals in elaborate costume, set within lush environments both botanical and architectural.
