Death and the Teacup by Caelicorn Death and the Teacup by Caelicorn
"My daughter asked me for a cup of tea one day. Usually she just liked to pretend she was sipping the stuff with her dolls in the garden, but I thought - maybe this is the natural progression? See if she likes it...." After awhile I noticed she came back inside empty-handed, so I asked her what she had done with it.

'I gave it to the sad man, mummy, on the street outside'

It was a sweet gesture, but also a little concerning. 'But honey, you know you shouldn't talk to strangers.'

My daughter merely tilted her head at me and stared up with those large, kind eyes. 'He wasn't a stranger, mummy, he knew your name.'






(This is probably the only work I've felt is worthy of a print, so if you buy it I will be ecstatic!

A long time working on this. The bench was referenced from a bench I found in google, but the rest is from my own extensive referencing, especially on cloak. Also, huge prints available soon!)

The last line about Death knowing the mother's name broke my heart.
Excellent picture. It's extremely well done.

Ahh it had the desired effect ;-) it was one of those middle of the night stories that popped into my head. I'm glad I wrote it down and illustrated it!

Thank you <3!
