The dark folklore costumes and creations of E the Starling:
The black and white world of Brian Serway:
Past the wall of gray stones, through the trees,
In a house made of spells, full of books,
With a light in his eye and his mind,
There he waits – the Old Man of the Woods.

It is strange to sleep alone, in a place no one knows….
As through the pipes the water fell, down to the bottom of the well….
Oh Saturn come devour me….
There is an old goat knocking at my windowpane…..
He’s the only human friend I’ve ever had….
“He walks in the mud, moves aside the reeds
No clapping of wings, no motions around
Just the singing wind in an ominous silence
I’ll take you down there”
(Bigod 20, “The Bog”)
