Kelpie!
I am currently working on a set of Celtic folklore illustrations as a commission! It's really fun 💚

What was my wish? An afternoon of Yeats and tea. ☕️📚 #wbyeats #celticfolklore

Celtic folklore states "A Black Fox-brings bad luck". Oh, great....just what I need.

Finished up @mcsweeneykyle s sleeve of Celtic Myths. A cool interactive howling banshee, phooka, Druid with a venison heart sacrifice, the green man and a questing beast! #phooka #banshee #greenman #questingbeast #celticmythology #celticfolklore #celtic #druid #silverbackink

The valley this morning. 🌿🌤
Our little wooded valley turns out is iimportant in ancient Welsh folk law, as it is where Pwyll, Prince of Dyfed, whilst on a hunting trip met Arawn, King of Annwn the Otherworld, with his pack of magnificent white hounds with red ears.
Pwyll then passes into the Otherworld (as the river tributary in the valley, Afon Barddu was a portal into that magical land).
Then after various adventures and battles Prince Pwyll becomes firm friends with King Annwn and his Queen.
Pwyll was also mentioned as part of King Arthur's court and his Otherworld faery wife Rhiannon, is also important in Welsh folk law and was very beautiful, clever and brave with her magic white horse.
The tale was written about in the Mabinogion which are the earliest prose stories in Britain. The stories were compiled in Middle Welsh in the 12th–13th centuries from earlier story telling traditions. The tale can be found the medieval Red Book of Hergest and White Book of Rhydde. 💚 #Wales #westwales #celticfolklore

So...I love this trilogy. Got the first one as a free gift from the library, and fortunately, the last one was already out (copyright 2017, so it was close).
Anyway, they're a combination of steampunk, Celtic folklore, and epic adventure. So good. And sad. And funny.

Earlier tonight (as of this post), I finished one of my most anticipated games of the year, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice on my PC. I've been following @officialninjatheory's development diaries from day one and it was very fascinating to see on how they're trying to make a high quality game on a small scale. It's hard to describe this game as it isn't for everyone but for those willing to go through it, it's a one of a kind experience that is worth checking out at least once. Touching on themes you wouldn't see in a video game, amazing visuals and sound design. While the game can be a bit slow for some and the puzzles can be a little tedious to figure out, it's still a solid game from start to finish. #hellblade #hellbladesenuassacrifice #ninjatheory #storydriven #narrative #videogame #videogames #celticfolklore #norsemythology

And finally that weird pointy ear cartilage comes in handy when you try to dress up as some creature of the woods 🍂.

Lughnasadh forest walk with Australian Kelpie guarding us all. Lughnasadh is a Gaelic seasonal festival and Kelpie is Gaelic language. The breed was named after the kelpie, a mythological shape shifting water spirit of Celtic folklore. 3–4% of Kelpies genes comes from Dingoes, how cool is that!

"He saw a fairy woman ride past on a white horse, and she clad in a garment of shinning gold. ...There was something magic about the lady that kept her always the same distance ahead, though she appeared to be riding slowly."

Hooman....I have seen things, terrible things. It starts with the empty food bowl in the mornings.😼.

My take on the banshee of celtic myth. Inspired by bog-mummies to make her more visceral and grounded. She's featured in my new novel Legend and Lore: In Human Skin. Many of the creatures in the first book come from Irish/Scottish folklore.

Quick sketch to get a possible Legend and Lore monster clear in my mind. The first novel, In Human Skin, is up on Kindle now at 99p.
