This is an illustration originally made to accompany a ceramic sculpture I made for an exhibition in 2014. Me and @artbyemshh made a part called "Väsen" -which translates to creatures- about folklore and fairytale creatures. I decided to fix it up a bit! (Also posting this to proove I can work with multiple artstyles and mediums) Swipe to see the sculpture + original sketch from 2014! 🐰🌱 Oh and here's the text originally made for it, which could be read at the exhibition together with the artworks (although in swedish, I translated it for you here): ”The MARSHARE is a close relative to the "Pukhare" (another creature from Swedish mythology) and is often falsely and cruelly called a "Bjära". A Bjära was thought to be animallike thieves created by witches or by the devil himself. The marshare on the other hand is a forest creature or nature spirit, if you will. They are usually kind, but cunning. They keep away from humans, but if someone trespasses in the wrong parts of the woods or were to harm the forest they should beware. The Marshare's fur varies in colour from brown to grey, therefore it's hard to separate them from ordinary rocks. The moss on their backs works as a clever disguise and the older they become, the more moss will cover their backs."
