Capricorn - Llewellyn Worldwide by juliedillon Capricorn - Llewellyn Worldwide by juliedillon
I got permission to post the interior illustrations for the 2014 Astrology Calendar for Llewellyn Worldwide! Iím going to post one sign per day until we get through them all. :) The Llewellyn calendar starts with Capricorn, so thatís where I will start as well.

Capricorn: December 22 to January 20. A Cardinal Earth sign. Hardworking, responsible, down-to-earth, stubborn. Dominant colors: grey, navy blue, indigo, brown/black. They are associated with stonework and high up, cold places (among other things), so I chose to portray the sign as an architect working on a castle/fortress high in the snowy mountains.

You can preorder the calendar if you like, or just check out the rest of Llewellyn Worldwide's offerings at www.llewellyn.com.

Fantastic, beautiful piece! :D (And the whole series, as well! :D)

And, man, this interpretation is freaky accurate about me. I happen to know someone who works as a professional astrologer; I'll send this to him and our mutual friends, and I guarantee you they'll laugh! ;)

Luckily there are different ways to interpret and depict things :)

By researching and brainstorming? There are a lot of different interpretations of the zodiac signs, there isn't one True Depiction saying that capricorns can only have one very specific type of horns. Same goes for any fictional/mythological type thing. And technically, he should be a fish-goat, not a man, if you want to be completely accurate.

Hm, I like this one! His expression and the cool (as in cold) background is very nice. I think a good portrayal of Capricorn.

I own this calendar and LOVE the art! I have story ideas for all the characters now. They are so fun to look at and admire and think up backstories for.

I like how you manage to put in the elements of a Capricorn into an artwork, making this like there's some story behind it :O

Thanks! I've been really trying to take a slightly different approach while still staying true to each sign (some are more successful than others) X) But I'm glad that it's still coming across! :)

My dad's a Capricorn, this guy kind of looks like him. Fittingly, dad was a stone mason.
