Canadian illustrator Michael Wandelmaier creates moody and atmospheric work which burns deeply in your inner-most conscience. Of his featured piece above Tailypo, he says: ‘Tailypo was a beast from a ghost story I knew as a kid that turned out to be widely known in North America. The story tells of a hunter who comes accross a strange creature in the woods and takes its tail as a souvenir after nearly killing it. The fierce creature returns to take its revenge and reclaim its tail which it calls it tailypo’.
