Midnight, the time where all worldly distractions come to an end. Construction, cars, Facebook notifications, and Twitter feeds fade into the darkness as evening melds with morning and silence settles in. That ever present, but absent void of all action and sound. You can not only can hear it, but feel it enter your body. As if every breath you take pulls you inward and opens a door in front of you. It’s a boon for creative minds, writers, and illustrators unlike any other. This magical period allows for an uninterrupted burst of creativity most long for… but rarely achieve. That, in itself, is “The Witching hour” where magic and ideas flow like fairy springs. Recharging and invigorating these minds of ours. This is where some of my favorite fantasy art and mythical creature pieces come to life.
