Mixed Media- “Mariposa” by Skyler Grogan


This 6×6 inch canvas was drenched in acrylic paint, and the paper unicorn princess was painted with watercolors, attached with craft glue, and sealed with gloss.
Mariposa is a young noblewoman in a kingdom of satyrs. Her unicorn attributes allow her clairvoyance, which the royal council uses for war tactics and economic advantage. Meanwhile, all she wants to do is go to masquerade parties and get mega wasted. She also enjoys kickboxing and hanging out with the common people. Sometimes she lies to the council so they’ll accidentally invest money into reducing poverty and making positive changes. Maybe someday she can escape the kingdom and achieve her dream of becoming a pastry chef.
