A Compendium of Witches ~ Hotaru by NatasaIlincic A Compendium of Witches ~ Hotaru by NatasaIlincic
“Since then, the only contact I've had with humans has been with children. Sometimes they would dare each other to come close to my hut. They called me Yama-uba, the old witch of the mountain.”

Hotaru’s story will take us to 19th century rural Hokkaido. It touches on a theme that is very dear to me - the line between animal and human, wilderness and civilization. It talks about acceptance and kindness.
I couldn’t stop smiling while I was painting this piece. If an illustration could convey pure happiness, this one would be it for me.

Her
 story will be featured among those of other wise women in my upcoming A Compendium of Witches, a project supported by my amazing Patreon community
