"Lömsk Björk" / "Insidious Birch"

Happy Midsummer on ya'll!

Make sure your children watch out for the insidious birch while playing in the forest. It is actually a flesh-eating insect in disguise.
Easy to miss, hard to escape.

Today is Sankt Hans / Saint John's Eve in my home country of Denmark. In Denmark we celebrate this by lighting large bonfires all over the country, typically accompanied by beer drinking and often late eating. On top of each bonfire is most often placed a model witch, because in Danmark it is believed to be the night of a witches' meeting on the Brocken, the highest peak in the Harz Mountains, a range of wooded hills in central Germany between the rivers Weser and Elbe (Believed to be on Walpurgis Night in Sweden). Traditionally the bonfires were lit to fence of the witches, but today - when the witch catches fire - it is said to "fly to Brocken" which can be interpreted as helping the witch on her way.

Beautiful slipcased reprint edition of the Scandinavian fairy tale collection East of the Sun, West of the Moon, with color illustrations throughout by Kay Nielsen. Not as well known today as his contemporaries Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac, Nielsen was still a huge commercial success in his time, producing many illustrated gift editions of children's classics and eventually collaborating with Disney on many story sketches. Taschen's reprint of the 1914 edition adds to the original with supplementary essays on the history of Norwegian folklore and dozens of previously unseen illustrations by Nielsen. #eastofthesunwestofthemoon #fairytaleillustration #kaynielsen #scandinavianfolklore #goldenageofillustration #childrensbooksillustration

Completed Witch #2 for the WITCH series - Lussi. .
➡️➡️Swipe for detail pictures➡️➡️
.
Lussi is a demon/witch from Scandinavian folklore. It is said that on December 13th, St.Lucy's Day, the old winter solstice, and the darkest night of the year -- Lussi, would fly through the town and snatch children who didn't help finish chores. If the home wasn't clean before the winter feast Lussi would fly down the chimney and snatch the children. The only way to ward her off was to stay up all night. Lussi is an earlier depiction of St. Lucy, a martyr who was said to wear a wreath of candles around her head to help he see in the night so that she could use both hands to bring food to the needy. I merged these two stories together for this artwork.

Nobody likes internet trolls, everyone loves forest trolls. This guy is neither. It is in fact a jätte, a giant in Scandinavian folklore.
They play a small role in the book I'm currently illustrating for @bokforlagetopal , out this fall.

This is what I bought today! A Harry Potter Trivia Persuit, a little bit of Hogwarts Library, a book of Spirits and Monster from Scandinavian Folklore and a fidget-spinner. I'm such a nerd lol 🤓 (I bought the fidget-spinner to calm my nerves, not because it's 'cool') #harrypotter #ScandinavianFolklore #fidgetspinner #triviapursuit #Stockholm #norradjurgårdsstaden #booknerd #nerd #summer2017 #scifibokhandeln
