I’m posting this wonderful image for all the goth girls, to celebrate May Day, and because it is half way to Hallowe’en!! Also because I was named after Sam played by Elizabeth Montgomery in Bewitched (my sisters also have witchy names – Rowena and Demelza) and I like to think I looked a little like this gothicky witch in my earlier days!! I can also imagine Kaja rocking up to her wedding wearing something a lot like this and reaching for her copy of Harry Potter!
This is in fact just a quick morning doodle from the gifted hand of Chris Riddell, political cartoonist on The Observer and author of the brilliant Goth Girl (daughter of Lord Goth). It’s my new screen saver replacing Vivien Leigh as Titania. Hope you like it too!
