Postcards Depict ‘Futuristic’ Moscow

These are just…pure and kind of endearing. It’s absolutely amazing to see what artists in 1914 (before the War!) thought the future would look like. Just…interesting. It’s kind of like steampunk in a way–with how it’s alternative to what actually happened. And it certainly would be a type of situation like that, given how we’re progressed long past these types of looks. But still, it’s an interesting inspiration to see what people over 100 years ago thought our future would look like.


Artwork Commission

If you are ever interested in getting artwork done of a spirit, deity, entity or the like — I highly suggest you check out Felix Warren (here is his Etsy: ForScryingOutLoud where I purchased).

The new side image “Domovoi” is work by him. It’s gorgeous and absolutely brilliant. Not to mention, it really does capture a nice spirit and show such beautiful details. On top of that though, he was extremely friendly and kind in talking to him during the process. It’s great to have friendly conversation, and he was absolutely the height of professional.

I linked the photo also to his shop–so please do check it out. I’m beyond enthused and pleased with the work he did, and will absolutely recommend him for others who are interested in commissioning artwork.

Ivan Bilibin – Artist

Ivan Bilibin is one of my favorite artists. I love his style, and the subject matter. Fairy tales have always been a weak spot of mine (I still adore reading versions even to this day–and I’ve got 2 copies of the Brothers’ Grimm, 1 English and 1 German–as well as my other fairy tale collections). And there’s just something beautiful about his work.
