Lunantisidhe the Blackthorn Faery


Drawing of a Lunantisidhe blackthorn faery

The other day, I saw a group of Lunantisidhe amongst the blackthorn bushes, but I was careful to stay out of sight as I sketched one as they are not the friendliest of faeries….
They are spindly and prickly and guardians of blackthorn trees. Their teeth are sharp and arms and fingers long so they can creep through the prickly branches.
They are said to be malevolent towards humans so be very wary whilst out gathering sloes…

My other faery art including sketches of faeries with their stories can be found here.
