“Why Faeries Dance: In memory of nature rituals. As vegetation grows at night, so faeries hold their moon lit revels to encourage growth, as the followers of Bacchus once did. Morris Dancing is said to be borrowed from them.

Line work to color! One of the projects I’ve been working on you may recognize. You may have thought I set this #folkloreandfairytales piece down, but I couldn’t help myself! I had to get color on this piece and I had to make a big experiment out of it, too (; + + + I’ll be scanning/photographing the first finished piece (of two, second piece is a work in progress) properly later this evening! Keep an eye out for it tomorrow! + + + #art #artist #atlantartist #digitalart #traditionalart #mixedmedia #illustration #folklore #fantasyart #abstract #duralar #acrylicink #snake #scales #linework #color #linework #blackandwhite #procreate at Decatur, Georgia

Kshanti, Spirit of Patience. I feel like the ability to be patient is intertwined with the ability to nurture something to life. From relationships to valuable skillsets, patience seems to be key so a spirit taking care of a tree felt like a suitable representation of the idea. at Toronto, Ontario

Did you know, the hawthorn or 'May-tree' is also known as the fairy tree in Ireland? It is believed to be extremely bad luck to cut one down, remove branches, or even hang things upon it (except at Beltane - Gaelic May Day) in case you disturb the little folk. 📸 Osoni #folklore #folklorethursday #fairies #hawthorn #may #wildlife #nature #lovewildlife #lovenature #irishfolklore #folkloreandfairytales #ireland

Geography & Werewolves -- In the European Middle Ages there developed somewhat of a difference in werewolves and their stories. The Western werewolf was mostly associated with witches and the use of witchcraft to cause others harm. The Eastern werewolf was more closely associated with the undead who returns to wreak havoc on the living. Either way, it wasn’t good for humans. 🧙‍♀️ 🐺 🐺 🐺 🧙‍♀️ #werewolf #werewolves #wolf #wolves #magicalwolf #witches #witchcraft #undead #folklore #folkloreandfairytales #folklorelove #lore #myth #mythological #mythical #mythology #myths #mythsandlegends #europeanfolklore #fantasy #fantasycreature #fantasycreatures #fantasybooks #fantasywriter #writinginspiration #amwriting #amwritingfantasy #amwritingfiction #bookinspiration

F&F Day 17: Wendigo The Wendigo is a mythological creature from the North Atlantic coast and Great Lakes region in the U.S. The term refers to both a monster with the thirst for human flesh or as a sprite possessing humans. The legends often surround taboo subjects such as cannibalism, murder and greed. The creature has also given its name to a psychological condition where a person can appear in a psychosis in which they crave human flesh. I was going for something a little more menacing, but it ended up looking a little like Max from Where The Wild Things Are. I’m perfectly okay with that. I also want to say thank you to everyone who have wished me a speedy recovery. It really means a lot. Thank you for making my little nook on the Internet such a warm and friendly space. ❤️ #folkloreandfairytales at Sweden

MANANANGGAL is a mythical monster from the Philippines that can separate its upper body from its lower, and sprout wings, which it does at night in order to fly around in search of prey to suck their blood. While doing this, its lower body remains in place and vulnerable, and it can be defeated by spreading salt or garlic on the severed portion of the lower body, which will prevent the Manananggal from being able to reconnect itself before sunrise, causing it to be destroyed. . . Learn more about Manananaggal and other random folklore creatures in my book 2017 Inktober "31 FEMALE GHOSTS, MONSTERS, AND DEMONS FROM AROUND THE WORLD" book available on my Etsy (link in profile) 🖤💀🌿 (only 6 copies left) . . #manananggal #folkloreandfairytales #folklore #darkillustration #horrorart #scarystories #inktoberbook #sketchbook #blackandwhiteart #inkart #artistoninstagram

When someone's art is speaking to you, make sure you listen to every word, every whisper of the pencil, every note their muse is humming. And check out @custombysophy and her incredible artworks. #custombysophy #giveaway #inspiration #Repost @custombysophy (@get_repost) ・・・ F&F Day 12: Dryad In Greek myth, the Dryads are nymphs who live in or near trees. The word is derived from drys meaning oak, but the definition has broadened to be a more general term for tree living nymphs. Albeit shy, there are many tales of them in Greek mythology and they are frequent inspirations to this day. #folkloreandfairytales

Friends, Milestones have been passed and challenges have been overcome in the last couple of months, almost while I wasn’t looking. I have been so busy with work and life that I haven’t really been able to express how much your support means to me, but I want you to know that I am so grateful for each and everyone of you. You’re constantly cheering me on, motivating me to keep pursuing this crazy notion of mine to share myself and my work with the world. For this, I can’t thank you enough. You rock my world daily. In order to give something back to you all, I am hereby opening up a giveaway to celebrate 70k followers. I wish I could give each of you something in return, but that is just not possible, so consider this a little token of my appreciation. The rules for entering are easy. You have to: 1. Follow me 2. Repost a pic of one of my drawings that you like to your page (feel free to print screen from my feed). 3. Tag me in it so I can see it (please tag me in the pic itself, if you just mention me in the comments, it’ll get lost in the feed). Make sure that your account is set to public to make sure that I don’t miss your entry. The giveaway is open until June 9. 3 randomly drawn winners will receive 2 prints of their choice from my Etsy shop, which will reopen this weekend. As always, may the odds be ever in your favour. at Sweden

The Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland! So according to legend, the Giant’s Causeway was originally a bridge that connected Ireland and Scotland built by an Irish giant when he challenged a Scottish giant in a fight. How cool is that? #giantscauseway #folklore #folkloreandfairytales #northernireland #ireland #sea #europe #cloudy #uk #britain at The Giant's Causeway

DAY 30: The Bear Man! The last creature of the challenge was your own choice, so I chose an image from 'The Bear Man', a Cherokee legend. In it, a man called Wirlwind lives with a bear and becomes bear-like. When they are trapped in a cave, the Bear says that the hunters will kill him for meat and fur but that Whirlwind should cover the blood with leaves afterwards. He does this and as he is lead away by the hunters, he looks back to see the Bear rise up from the leaves, shake himself and return to the cave... This is the moment I chose to show. Thanks to @custombysophy for this lovely challenge and I'm glad I got around to finally completing it 😄 Promarkers, copic multiliner and sakura jellyroll. #art #drawing #illustration #sketchbook #bear #bearman #cherokee #cherokeelegend #leaves #folkloreandfairytales #folkloreandfairytales2019 #challengebysophy #folklore #artsy #artist #artistsofinstagram #artstagram #artoftheday #artwork #drawingoftheday #sketchoftheday #instaart #instaartist #instagramers #instacool #igers #instadaily #instagood #nativeamerican at Stockport

F&F Day 24: Cerberus Went for the two headed version today as it's a little different but feel like I might come back and do a more traditional Cerberus with three heads. This one came together pretty quickly and I really like how it fits together.

I don’t usually go for Sasquatches, Yeti won me over anyway. ° ° ° ° ° ° ° ° Yes, I know “Sasquatches” and “Yeti” aren’t the exact same creature, as they originate in separate cultures of different folklore...however the mainstream puns had unbearable, abominable punchlines; so I had to make an exception. 😏🙃 #sasquatch #yetitribe #yeticreatures #colorado #breckenridge #breckenridgecolorado #migu #bigfoot #folklore #folkloreandfairytales #squatch #squatchandlearn #squatch&learn at Downtown Breckenridge, Colorado

"Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell" by Susanna Clarke has to be one of my favorite stories of all time, which is a very big thing for me to say. As much as I love the simplistic red cover with the Raven silhouette, I wanted to try my hand at drawing my own, which has been inspired by the old fashioned illustrations in books like "Grimm Fairy tales." This is an unfinished piece, but it took me a few days to do and I'm pretty proud of it, so I decided to show the first stage to you lovely people x Next step is inking, and then colour. I've set myself a challenge to draw a picture for every book that I read, so expect a fair few book covers on the horizon. What book are you in the middle of and how is it going? Also, does anyone else have an adorable little cat assistant who helps with your photoshoots? #bookart #bookarts #bookstagram #jonathanstrangeandmrnorrell #fantasy #fairytales #folkloreandfairytales #fairyart #artworks #sketch #artinprogress #illustration #illistration #bookart #fanart #jonathanstrangemrnorrell #sketchinprogress

Day 30 - [ DULLAHAN ] This is it - the long overdue final entry. I've decided to settle on a Dullahan - apparition of an Irish origin, mostly known as The Headless Horseman. But since there has been plethora of horses and various horse parts already, I've went with the second depiction of the legendary spirit, which is a possessed/animated set of armour. After month and a half of drawing fleshy, hairy, scaly, feathery things of all sorts, it was quite refreshing to draw something different in nature. And it was a good transitory opportunity to tune back into my regular "stuff", in a manner of speaking. I've also thrown in negative version of it, just for the sake of it. All in all, F&F challenge turned out to be quite an experience. Many mistakes were made. A lot of things has been learned. Lots of frustration and tremendous amount of fun, going hand in hand. I've discovered a number of great artist, and have been thoroughly enjoying entries from the wonderfully creative people I already knew. This was the first prolonged art challenge that I've taken seriously, and what a memorable endeavour it was. So, once again, thank you very much @custombysophy for hosting the event. And thank you, people - for sticking around, for being supportive and patient with my arse. I have the utmost gratitude to all of you. Now I can finally take a breath, and move onwards, making something out of myself with this whole " art" thing.

Some of you may know that I have a long standing Love affair with the Hawthorn Tree. 16 years ago the great Hawthorn standing in Chelsea Physic Gardens stole my heart and led me to a year long plant study. Living in London at the time, I wished for a garden with a Hawthorn Tree. All these years later I live in a Valley of Hawthorn which recapture my heart every Spring & Autumn. During my plant study year I had no inkling that I’d follow the path of wellbeing for Women & Girls. Nearly 20 years on, I honour this tree more than ever. Symbolising Fertility and Bloodshed it strengthens our heart and connects us with the Faery Realm. Deeply rooted in Folklore it reminds us of the truth we’ve all forgotten. This particular tree is growing in the field above our house. It grows together with Elder - commonly found entwined. This Beauty marks one of our many valley springs which in itself tells a wonderful story about the Keepers of the Wells... but that’s for another time. . . #hawthorn #hawthorntree #plantwisdom #treewisdom #faeryrealm #folkloreandfairytales #sacredtrees #sacredtreespirit
