The Knautbold – A Courageous Little Fairy

Knautbolds are small fairies which live in the woods of Eastern Europe as well as the tundras of Northern Europe.
They are very hard to find, especially after a big tragedy that occured centuries ago which involved a horde of foraging Phrans, the dark dream fairies.

Below is a picture of a Knautbold out of one of my sketchbooks. It´s not very easy to nail them down (illustration wise), because they do not like the company of humans… and they are extremely fast!
I will post more about them in a later post.

  1. I´m impressed! Growing up among the fairy-folk myself, I know how tricky it is to find them…
    I´m sure you bribed them somehow.
    Perhaps with sweetened caterpillars?

    • Hm, that’s not a bad idea. I’ll try it the next time 🙂 Actually I was just sitting at a spot where the wind was advantageous. Oh, and Knautbolds love mosquito larva as far as I know 🙂

  2. Really pretty drawings John. Reminds me of an animation I once watched called Watership Down (1978).

    • yes, I remember Watership Down. I saw it as a kid and I remember that I loved the drawings and I remember that I was confused, because they did not behave like the Disney rabbits I had seen before :))) An all time classic!
