I enjoy the dynamic energy of the bull. Very representative of the energetic, earthy Taurus. It strikes me as an unconventional bull. The bull has a feminine feel to it, too, with some elegant, equine grace too it. The horns have an artful curve to to them. Almost an amalgam of horse/bull/unicorn.

All the effort is pointless if you don't believe in yourself.

Perhaps even the companionship of an evil person is preferable to loneliness.

I am a Taurus and I love what you have done with the symbol. A lot of artists use more earth tones and reds, but the green color scheme was genius. I look at it and can almost feel spring!

I really liked this one! I like the interpretations on all of them, but Taurus in particular reminded me of other bull-legends - Pasiphae, and the Cattle Raid of Cooley.

I love and enjoy the whole series. I especially admire how you thoughtfully avoid some cliches. :love:
