The Witching Hour

Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.


Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Cool it with a baboon's blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.

William Shakespeare, Macbeth: IV.i 10-19; 35-38 

The season of fear has descended upon us in full strength, howling winds and cold rains (in some places fiercer than in others - keep safe), and with it, Halloween! Ghouls and Goblins and Ghosties, oh my! These may be the final few hours of the holiday proper, but don't think we've forgotten our dues.

While we've had a bigger pic for you in mind, I'm afraid you'll have to wait for next year to see it... See, the little demons here in Somnova have been busy, busy busy at work writing and drawing and composing some pretty sweet treats for the laughing lot of you, so for now, how about this enchanting little magic trick from our naughty, naughty artist buddy, Troyd?


Feeling bewitched yet? 

Happy Halloween from Somnova Studios, everyone!
