The Erl-King by AbigailLarson The Erl-King by AbigailLarson
I'm just getting into Angela Carter's "Bloody Chamber" and the Erl-King story really stood out to me. I have several pieces from that story, and I can't recommend Ms. Carter's work strongly enough. She gets into the gritty, dirty, carnal corners of fairytales.

I love that poem and your drawings completely encompasses the mood in it. I haven't heard of "The Bloody Chamber" though. I might have just to look for this...um... short story collection(?).

Just seeing the title of this piece immediately reminded me of that story. Great illustration for a great story :>

I'm not familiar with Angela Carter's version, but I remember hearing a recording of the old poem when I was in elementary school.  Chilling!
