Great Aunt Minerva Oakgriddle's pie: Simply to die for.

Minerva Oakgriddle, 3rd eldest in the Witch's Woggle of East Wood, has over three hundred year's experience in malevolent baking. Her pies and dumplings were once legendary throughout the Woggle community.

Unfortunately, seventy years ago she burnt off the tip of her tongue in an ill-advised taste testing, so when you visit, keep your cat handy. A quick forkful under the table when Minerva isn't looking will likely save you hours of agony later on.

Wow Sam. I really love the Daniel adel type feel to it. You really have a purity of color that I covet.

Amazing Sam!! Everything is perfect. The background is as cool as her. Lots of fun details.

I am floored. I love how there is so much story in this and how simle it still is.

Oh man, this piece is wonderful. I love that lady! However, I cannot get on board with using your cat as a food tester. tsk tsk

But this picture is great. I love how austere she looks. Haha. I can't get over it.

It's kind of freaky but dang funny at the same time. Love the colors, and all that other technical junk. :)

She is creepy as hell!

Love your work!

I love this one, Sam... her eyes are so bloodshot and creepy. I'm not sure if that's because she's a witch or just because she's old, but I don't think a distinction needs to be made. What's the difference between "old" and "witch" anyway? Not much. I love the colors.

Robin Goodfellow said...

this makes me want to crawl under a table and hide. not from her. from you. i feel so inadequate, this is just one of the coolest things posts. i mean, dude, even her name and write up are genius. the colors play off one another so well and the shape variations, the roundness of her eyes, the square chin, the triangular nose. brilliant.
