belladonna

This has been on the back burner for a while… I’ve basically given up on the background.

But more importantly the creepy plant!

Infernal Tongues (sometimes called Hell Tongues, or Devil Fungus) is a strange fungus that gives off magical energy, often wreaking havoc with any unicorn’s spells.

Can only grow in shady areas, and will close itself during the day to protect the soft flesh of the plant from sunburn (depicted is Bell kind of forcing one to open before sunset)

The sap of an Infernal Tongue can be used in various spells- none of which are used for anything good. However, consuming the sap can cause hallucinations, most commonly hallucinations of shadowy demons and writhing tentacles.

((Infernal Tongues created by Me, but any pony blog may use them for their own purposes))

Modern Belladonna Took

Belladonna Took was born to a large, eccentric family and raised on a sprawling English estate. She grew up consumed by wanderlust, and in lieu of attending university chose to travel the world taking photographs. She has since become a successful photojournalist who’s always looking for a new adventure. She finds one in an unexpected place by falling in love with bookish homebody Bungo Baggins.

Deadly Nightshade/Belladonna

  • Latin Name: Atropa belladonna
  • Common/Folk Name: Dwale
  • Planet: Saturn

Belladonna is typically used in baneful magic and astral magic. Also an ingredient in the ‘flying ointment’.

At one time, Italian woman would use belladonna to dilate their pupal because it made them more desirable. This herb is very poisonous, and can be lethal, even in small doses.

**ingesting this plant can be deadly, do your own research to use the herb properly**

It’s tax day. And that sucked. But April 15 also marks the frost free day in my neck of the woods. To celebrate, I upgraded all my plants from my greenhouse to my new poison garden. 

From the top:  Datura inoxia (Angel’s Trumpt)
Atropa belladonna (Deadly Nightshade)
Digitalis purpurea (Foxglove)
Hyoscyamus niger (Henbane)
Helleborus orientalis (Christmas Rose)
Aconitum napellus (Monkshood)
Conium maculatum (Poison Hemlock)
Ruta graveolens  (Rue)

So… now I’m that crazy witch lady. I’m ok with that.

- I Dream of Sleep -

my first illustration series!

Sleep is a part of my life that I either have a whole lot of or have none at all of. Which is weird given how many important biological and emotional processes take place while we sleep; functions like healing, getting some space, remembering and organizing all your thoughts, etc.

In this series, I picked out some of the processes that occur when we sleep that really stuck out to me, and illustrated them using imagery from plants and herbs related to each one. Originally painted in watercolor and gouache paint, then digitally retouched with text implemented, I hope you enjoy looking at these as much as I enjoyed painting them :) 


Thanks for looking!

     Lex arrived with Belladonna just before midnight. The pizzeria was still and silent, and looked creepy at night despite how immaculate it was kept at all times during the daytime.

     Once inside, Lex noticed that nothing was out of place at all. The animatronics you could see right away, the classic Fazband, stood on their stage in the dim light, not yet active.

     Everything and everyone was still, for the moment.
