1 February 2014 ~ Hyacinth Noir’s Imbolc Literary Issue
Post IV ~ the Bride, by Sam Thorp

I wanted to illustrate and pay homage to the essence of the Sabbat.  In some ways this is the toughest time of year for me, personally. T he cliche of ‘the darkest before the dawn’ comes to mind when riding out the last leg of winter.  I set out to illustrate ‘the Bride’, the feminine power that sweeps out the old so the new can enter.  This is meant to be optimisitic, to give hope.  This is a time of great potential, to close out situations that need to end and to get a jump on what needs done.
