Today we’re sharing a detail of the illustration “The Tower of Babylon” where we zoom in on one of the twins with the outstanding spear born from a fish slice…
Now that we think about it, if you haven’t read the story this might be puzzling, but fear not! You can read our own translation of a mix of two versions of the folktale on our previous post: Portuguese Folktale: The Tower of Babylon

If you’re off to read we hope you enjoy it or if you had read it already and actually understood the fish fillet detail…

The sunny star in the sky has nothing on the light that two hearts in sync can create. Accordingly, even if we stare at Mark and Lira, they are in their own little world right now, so no harm done.

This commission was made for PinkythePink along with previous ones: Aerie and Mark’s Noble Party and Mark and Aerie on the brink of starting a new adventure. Follow the links to check them!

“On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree.”

Until we remember how grim the tale is… Despite that, we’re happy to bring you this story where its first appearance was on “Fabulário Português” in the XV century, dealing us in how much guilt can eat you up from inside.

As the previous folktales, this is Illustrated, translated and adapted by yours truly, StarTwo.
