I think this one is either Bäckahäst or Bækhest.

Not sure if they are similar to Kelpie but cool anyway <3

Oh man, this series. I remember reading this a few years ago, it was my introduction to what Kelipies were. Thank you for this amazing comic, and introducing me to this mythical monster.

It's his house/studio. the horses in the front are statues. He kept building the same thing over and over to try to understand what happened to him.

I came across this on funnyjunk.com and the poster included a link back here. Needless to say, this is a impressive peice of art and a respectful nod to a mythological beast.

Yeah, this has traveled far and wide in the ... shit, 4 years since I posted it. I'm happy that mythology fans seem to like it best though.

Thank you. :)

The internet is a little like the tide, it moves things to surprising places.
