Home of the GNAT AUX and future DRACO Ada compilers.

Who is reponsible for the cool dragon artwork?

One thing about Ada websites, whenever they depict Ada Lovelace, it's always using the same old Victorian era paintings.
I thought it would be fun to re-imagine her harnessing (breaking in?) a dragon, so just for fun I checked out the internet
for female dragon riders.

I stumbled upon a monthly artist competition at The Gnomon Workshop. The theme for the July 2009 competition was
"Dragon Rider" (perfect, right?), and there I discovered the Guatemalan artist Arturo Aguirre (aka TioBolasdoro).
Here is Arturo's original, untouched submission for the contest, which unfortunately did not win:
