Literary Witches: A Celebration of Magical Women Writers

Virginia Woolf

Octobers are usually filled with witchy tales, but Literary Witches: A Celebration of Magical Women Writers celebrates rather damns the women within its pages. Poet Taisia Kitaiskaia and artist Katy Horan joined forces to draw a powerful connection between witches and visionary female writers through written and painted portraits that honor well-known and obscure authors alike.

Miles Johnston

 

From November to September I set aside all of the creepiest, most disturbing art I come across in anticipation of October, then dedicate all 31 days of the month to an onslaught of dark creativity. Today we’re kicking things off with the illustrations of Miles Johnston whose “surrealism realism” will make you do a double-take.

Charlotte Chauvin

 

Charlotte Chauvin‘s – aka Cha Coco‘s – simple line drawings run the gamut from shy and sweet to sexy and risqué. My favorite recurring subject matter are the human hands she favors and illustrates in a myriad of ways.

Irene Laschi

 

I’ve already said goodbye to a few of my annuals from summer and am thinking ahead to mums and pumpkins, so you could say botanicals are on my mind. Irene Laschi is an Italian artist who specializes in scientific illustration, and her captures of flora are detailed and starkly beautiful.
