At The Table: Midwinter Myths - Twelve Food Superstitions of Christmas

I love reading about folklore and superstitions, especially around Christmas. I like the way it connects with history, rituals slowly evolving with new customs. I researched and illustrated 'Twelve Food Superstitions of Christmas' which you can now read on the At The Table editorial section here.

Winona zine

I made a Winona zine! I've been talking about this for a while now and it's taken a while because I wanted to make sure I could get a likeness. The zine features drawings inspired by Beetlejuice, Heathers, Mermaids, Edward Scissorhands, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Reality Bites, Girl Interrupted and Stranger Things. Apart from Winona, the zine also has a few cameos from her films including Gary Oldman, Cher and Whoopi Goldberg. The zine is A4 sized, features eight photocopied pencil drawings and has a lilac cover.

The zine is available to purchase from my Etsy shop.
