The idea for this drawing came to me while looking at photos of horses running across beaches and listening to the Viking-themed melodic death metal band Amon Amarth. I call this creature a Narwhalicornceros* and I hope to share the finished product on my RedBubble portfolio – once I can wrest control of the computer with the scanner away from my Minecraft-playing son.
*I imagined and invented this, and don’t know of anything similar that other people have created, though I concede that the concept of a Merhorse probably isn’t that original!

"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. God Himself is not secure, having given man dominion over His works! Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold. Faith alone defends. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable." -Helen Keller
