Happy belated Krampusnacht folks! For those that don't know the Krampus is a mythological creature from German folklore who comes on The Feast of St. Nicholas, whereas as St. Nicholas hands out gifts and presents to all the good children The Krampus hands out coal to the naughty children, and even takes away the really naughty children

GUTTENTAG! I’m back from my holidays. I went to Berlin in case you wondering, it was my second time visiting the city and each time I’ve visited I’ve fell more and more in love with it, it has amazing people and even more amazing food, as you can probably tell by my photos I especially love the Museum fur Naturkunde.
Now I’m back I’ve got alot of work to catch up on and my shops back open for those stuck for Christmas gifts this year.

These are the two pieces that I'll be exhibiting in the 'Hinterland' exhibition at Colours May Vary in Leeds, the exhibition is a collaboration with Lord Whitney and features some great artists. Hinterland is a celebration of British Folklore, The Mythical, Arcane, Fabled and Savage. The work I've chosen to exhibit is based on two separate local myths, the first 'The Badger Funeral' is old story that badgers bury their dead and even perform a burial ceremony. The second 'The Hell Hounds' is based on an old legend 'The Wild Hunt' where a pack of spectral hounds were supposed to hunt wrongdoers and escort them to the Otherworld. 'The Wild Hunt' took place throughout Autumn and Winter evenings and their eerie howls were often heard in the nights sky. The hounds were also named Cwn Annwn, Gabriel Hounds, Yell Hounds and Ratchets.
