[Painting of Death as a spectral nanny taking a child and infant away from their bereaved family.  A detail shows the family’s house number is 1918.]

I never realized this until seeing the detail, but this painting is most likely about the flu pandemic.

it’s really interesting seeing death portrayed as a woman 

Especially a a nurturer rather than a destroyer

"Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do."

Cicero, 106 BC - 43 BC  (via thelittlephilosopher)

FAIRY

M.O.M. Classification: XX

"The fairy is a small and decorative beast of little intelligence. Often used or conjured by wizards for decoration, the fairy generally inhabits woodlands or glades. Ranging in height from one to five inches, the fairy has a minute humanoid body, head, and limbs but sports large insect like wings, which may be transparent or multi-colored, according to type."

"The fairy possesses a weak brand of magic that it may use to deter predators, such as an Augurey. it has a quarrelsome nature but, being excessively vain, it will become docile in any occasion when called to act as an ornament. Despite it’s humanlike appearance, the fairy cannot speak. it makes a high pitched buzzing noise to communicate with its fellows."

"The fairy lays up to fifty eggs at a time on the underside of leaves. The eggs hatch into brightly colored larvae. At the age of six to ten days these spin themselves a cocoon, from which they emerge one month later as fully formed winged adults."

-Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

It’s a huge dream of mine to work on the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” movie trilogy. I’ve been trying to draw some beasts from the book lately in hopes that sharing them may lead me to doing some design work on the films. This prospect is really exciting to me, so expect more creature drawings from me. I hope you enjoy.  :)
