Illustration Bane of Icarus

des - Bane of Icarus

Strange Nightmares of my Recent Past # 1
Random notion came into my mind yesterday - started drawing, no particular idea where it was going, and this emerged. I think it looks a bit William Blake-y, but I dunno...
The curse of Icarus? A clan of people half human-half eagle, who survive by taking the weak and unwary as food? Something between a vampire and a werewolf? Just some ideas I'm mucking about with here...

You're right with William Blake!
The female figure seems to be a phoenix-like creature ...
