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.  :)

I have battled with myself for days over this - distraught, distressed, cried out, tired - and in my best interest and my husband’s I was convinced by him and our remaining supportive family members to do this.

We’re getting…

Here’s a Minoan Swallow Harpy + 7 for Gyllian! And as Brandon requested, she is carrying a coconut.

Two more Excel gum ads have been spotted: a garlic bulb with nipple pasties and a pizza slice lounging on what appeared to be a bearskin rug. I MUST KEEP PACE. SO. Ginger pin-up + 18

imagine a vampire going “fuck it” and just taking some antihistamines before going to town on a plate of garlic bread

later on it’s wheeled into the ER with like a puffed up face and it just goes “I have been on this earth 10 thousand years but i have not lived until this day”

Mlem!

I started making little Sculpey anglerfish for an art show, and I still have a bunch left over! I’ll be putting them up on Etsy over the next week.
