Often stories with a devil’s pact as their theme have the ill-fated hero offer his or her soul as a prize for such deal. That is not the case in this very old folktale we chose to translate and adapt and now have the delight to share with you! We invite you to sit back and enjoy this folktale from the Middle Ages colleted by Teófilo Braga!
The Knight And The Pact With The Devil (translation, adaptation and art by StarTwo)
Here’s one of the images we’re working on right now!
This one will accompany the next Portuguese Folktale we will soon release. It’s a very old medieval story and the version we got, though more recent, it’s still a doozy to translate. As you can guess from the title though, it will involve knights, devils and… holy ladies? It’s a mystery for now!
We decided to share a closer look at our not so Little Red Riding Hood and her young wolfy friend. We truly wanted to give a clean slate to this wolf and emphasize it being a cub, thus super cute puppy eyes were deployed.
Here are the lines for our illustration of a not so young Red Riding Hood and a not so grown wolf. With a time scramble, we propose the freedom of finding new paths and different consequences to different decisions.
Will the wolf be good? Will Red Riding Hood be wise? We find Time scrambles really interesting!
