Sadlittles ‘Essence of Fairyland’ – Absinthe

I was asked to make a painting which would be a printed card for the set ‘Essence of Fairyland’, and I could do whichever fairy I liked, so I chose ‘La Fée Verte’, the Green Fairy of Absinthe.

‘The Green Fairy in the Absinthe wants your soul…’
(Bram Stoker’s Dracula).

Sadlittles ‘Essence of Fairyland’ sketch cards

For the printed card for this set I chose to do ‘La Fée Verte’, the Green Fairy of Absinthe, so for the sketch cards I invented more fairy patrons of other delightful and decadent little pleasures – some quite harmless, others deliciously disastrous.

Legends & Lore

For the Legends & Lore set I decided to go a little retro, i.e. Ancient Greece & Egypt. So for your delectation I present a honey-wrapped sliver of Ancient Egyptian-ness when statement jewellery was BIG, and a plethora of Greek stars from a time when humans were muscly and Gods were nutjobs.

So get some wine, peel some grapes, and command your minstrel to strum his lyre while you daydream across the wine-dark sea.
