The Stolen Child

I was recently included in a very beautiful Irish-Estonian project celebrating William Butler Yeats.
It is a calendar for 2016 and 2017 with illustrations inspired by different Yeats poems and created by different Estonian and Irish artists.
Initiated and organized by Michael Walsh and Maria Kerin, in collaboration with Outrider Artists and Vedelik.

I created an image for The Stolen Child...and got the month of May-the most beautiful time of year in Estonia..

Yeats is an old favourite, so re-visiting him was beautiful, and haunting.
Ended up recording the poem too...hoping my Estonian accent might perhaps pass as faery...
