silly beasts cease your flying by muura silly beasts cease your flying by muura
So due to leppus suggestion I checked out Walter Moers for the first time and OH BOY was I on verge of tears over how good his stuff is. The City of Dreaming Books was my introduction and I really had to properly fanart my vision of Hildegunst von Mythenmetz. (Who is called Optimus Yarnspinner in the english translation? …why?)

This is the first Walter Moers fanart I have ever found, so glad I found this, that man made my childhood :D

Oooh I wish I had discovered him as a kid, would've grown up with such good inspiration, but better late than never!

Words well spoken.
You read any other books of his?

I read Rumo and his Miraculous Adventures (loved it, so much darker than his other books!) The 13 ½ Lives of Captain Bluebear, aaand this other one that wasn't apparently translated in english, Ensel and Krete. I also skimmed through Wild Ride through the Night.. totally looking forward to reading Alchemister's Apprentice next, it isn't translated in finnish though which is sad, because European languages translated into eachother work a lot better than to english..!

Mietin aina et miltäköhän näyttäis jos saisit tehtyä animaation piirroksistas? Osaan aina nähdä miten mikäkin sun kuvistas liikkuis :D.

Tää on tosi mielenkiintoinen, vaikka tosin en tiedä mikä hahmo tuon on ja mistä? :B

Voi kauheeta, animaatio on niin aikaavievää et oon todennut et se ei oo mun juttu :'B

Se on Hildegunst von Mythenmetz Walter Moersin Uinuvien Kirjojen Kaupungista, niin upee kirja et suosittelen kovin : D
