Blessed (slightly belated) Beltane, everyone!

Welcome Spring, and blessed be it’s Queen, who loves us SO much that she leaves her own beloved for months in order to give us flowers and sunshine and green.

(I was really struck about that while I was drawing this – yes, Spring is Her domain as it was before She married Hades, but Her Love for us is palpable to me. Surely She misses Him – and on this day of marriage of Lady and Lord, I had to show Him up looking up at Her, too – but Her devotion to us, in return to OUR devotion, felt so very strong and true as I was drawing this. Aaaaaaand it came out MUCH more impressive than I expected! So it gets a proper scan.)

Sooooo as you might have noticed, my Persephone Ostara drawing is quite overdue now…

But it finally felt like Spring here today – all rain-soaked and alive – so here’s a little progress!

Hoping to finish this up this week, as well as some commission work and “Tock the Gnome” bonuses.

Stay lovely and hopeful, everyone ❤

Almost late, but Blessed Imbolc everyone 🌱🍃🌹

I wanted a break from doing fae-cultural specific Sabbat Sketches, so this year we’ll be focusing on Queen Persephone (who I’ve been blessedly drawn to lately) and Her cycle through the seasons with Her husband Hades and Her mother Demeter! I feel like it’s going to be a challenge, but I am quite excited and very pleased with this first drawing.

As for their cycle together, I believe right now that the King and Queen of the Underworld are enjoying one last sabbat together below, before Persephone returns to the world above, when spring fully blooms. 💗

Welcome back, beloved sun, beloved Light of our sky and our hearts!

Hope everyone who’s celebrating is having a lovely time, as did I – and may we all set intention well, and shed this year’s negativity, in Love and Light.

(Aaaaaaand as I may have mentioned before – this makes 3 sets of Sabbat Sketches. Which means next year, there will be a coloring book, as promised!

A little belated, but I hope everyone had a magickal one! 

Blessed (and slightly belated) Mabon, my friends. Bless the Earth and bless the harvest, both inside and outside ourselves.

Blessed Lammas everyone!

May the beginning of the harvest warm our hearts with gratitude and open our eyes to the state of the earth around us.

(I think my concern for the state of the planet came out a little more than intended, but she looks badass, so win win hopefully.)
