Another Color Kley

How about this Heinrich Kley beauty?
An eerie fantastical underwater scene with some kind of a sea horse, a lagoon type creature and who knows what else. Kley was such a prolific artist, he illustrated story books, he rendered architectural designs, he did postcards and of course those famous pen and ink drawings of animals, fantasy creatures and humans.

If you want to see some of his originals up close, head over to the amazing
Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco. Walt owned quite a few Kley originals, and the Museum currently showcases a selection. Here is the link with some more info about the exhibit :
