Levitating, Meditating, Flute-playing Gnu

 [Levitating, Meditating, Flute-playing Gnu] 

This color drawing depicts a levitating gnu, deep in meditation, wrapped snugly in a gold robe. Both he and his computer float gracefully above the floor—only his tail lightly touches the ground. He gently holds a recorder between his front hooves, as if he has just gotten the inspiration to charm his computer with music. There is a gleam in his eyes as he gazes ahead at his computer screen.
