Gloomy Gatherings

With a deep love for fairy tales lasting back into the earliest years of my childhood, faerie creatures have time and again emerged in my drawings. From the pink, winged unicorns from first grade, creatures inspired upon me from the old fairy tales have developed a gradually gloomier, more twisted character, representing well the eerie feeling which stories of trolls, huldra, and other creatures of old Nordic tradition have always sent upon me. This project showcases creatures and characters of my own as well as famous creatures of classic myth. The drawings are all illustrations for little gloomy stories playing out in my head when I least expect it...

They gather in the forest deep...
