I did this colored-pencil illustration of a cartoon horse years ago. The title of the piece is Sleeper, and it served as a portfolio piece for me. It may have been published on my sites, Bugbones and/or Southern Muse. A sleeper is a horse (or anything) that was not expected to win ~ perhaps has been a failure in the past ~ but came out of nowhere to win. This sleeper is now resting on his laurels and now uses his experience wisely... as a bookie. I hereby release Sleeper into the public domain. The above image links to a slightly larger Jpeg. I'm not sure if I still have the original art, but I still have photos of it and could possibly provide a larger image than is posted here, if needed.
