Svipdag Transformed by John Bauer
Svipdag angered Odin, not only by tricking him for the hand of Freya but also because Svipdag led a warhost against Hadding, a warrior whom Odin particularly liked.  Odin sank Svipdag’s ships and all aboard perished save Svipdag who was turned into a great sea dragon.

As a child I felt myself to be alone, and I am still, because I know things and must hint at things which others apparently know nothing of, and for the most part do not want to know. Loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible.

The Blampied Edition of Peter and Wendy" 1940.
Edmund Blampied 1886-1966 
Edmund Blampied was one of the most eminent artists to come from the Channel Islands, yet he received no formal training in art until he was 16 years old. He was noted mostly for his etchings and drypoints, published at the height of the print boom in the 1920s, but was also a lithographer, caricaturist, cartoonist, book illustrator and artist in oils, watercolours, silhouettes and bronze.

Much like fairy tales, there are two facets of horror. One is pro-institution, which is the most reprehensible type of fairy tale: Don’t wander into the woods, and always obey your parents. The other type of fairy tale is completely anarchic and anti-establishment.

European Beewolf (Philanthus triangulum)

Also sometimes known as the Bee-eating Philanthus, the European Beewolf is a species of solitary Crabronid wasp that is native to Europe and Northern Africa. Unlike what P. triangulum's common name might suggest adults are actually herbivores and will feed on nectar and pollen. Only inseminated females will hunt down bees, specifically Western Honey Bees (Apis mellifera), and paralyze them. Once paralyzed the female will place the bee in an underground chamber along with an egg. The bee will serve as food for the wasp larvae once it hatches.

Although many other members of the genus Philanthus will hunt various species of bees Philanthus triangulum is unique in that it is the only species to specialize in one bee species
