Legendary Dragons in Modern Graphic Designers Interpretation

Thousands of myths about the appalling creatures called dragons can be found in the folklore of practically every country. Although every nation describes them differently, endowing with some peculiar characteristics (for example, existence or absence of the bat-like wings, front legs, feathers or scales, etc.), all of us equally feel irrational fear of them. There is no single theory as for the reason or source of myths about dragons; however, some scientists suggest that fossil remains of dinosaurs – animals people have never seen alive, but witnessed their tremendous remnants – gave raise to the legends about huge, furious, fire-breathing creatures.

Dragons look imposing, fear-inducing, invulnerable, and invincible. They are characterized with supernatural power, sharp eye, wisdom, longevity and surely rage. Scientists suggest that mythological dragons just like large cats, snakes, and birds of prey possess the features a human being has an inherited instinctive fear of.

These legendary winged animals with serpentine and reptile features are not less popular today: they are featured in the movies and literature, portrayed on the art paintings, and often used on the logos of gothic bands.

Our Legendary Dragons showcase offers you a chance to learn the modern interpretations of dragons. It looks like creative graphic designers will never run short of the ideas and ways of presenting these legendary creatures to the audience. Here you can find the dragons made of still and mist, those flying above the clouds and the ones crawling on the ground; here they inspire fear and… even make kids laugh! There is no mistake here: these days dragons are not solely furious creatures, on the contrary, they are sometimes depicted as funny and clumsy weird animals.

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
