Sci-fi author Brian Aldiss sadly died a few days ago, shortly after his 92nd birthday. "Helliconia Spring" remains my favourite of his works; many years ago, when I was in the 5th year of secondary school (so, penultimate year before leaving), I used to doodle little hoxneys in the margins of my English schoolwork (to the bemusement of my English teacher). Hoxneys were these horse-like creatures that emerged from dormancy as the planet Helliconia warmed up, and they were described as being striped.
I suppose it was meant they were striped like a tiger, but I always envisioned them as being somewhat like a toed version of a prehistoric horse, like merrychippus, with bright coloured stripes going down their backs.
So, in honour of Brian Aldiss, I've drawn a hoxney in the style I used to do them.
