Folktale Week in 2019 happened like every other, with seven prompts. I managed just one, but it was a special one, for sure.
The curse of the screaming skull at Ffagnallt Farm is a folktale from Flintshire, North Wales. It is similar to other screaming skull tales that exist around the country, perhaps the world. I put my efforts into this particular one, leaving me no energy to work through the other six prompts that would make up the ‘week’.
Ffagnallt is a working farm in my partner’s family. Getting to illustrate it for an international illustration project was incredible fun. It was also my first attempt at Working with Adobe Fresco.
I still have six folktales to illustrate.
