XIII- The Metamorphosis
Say Hi to my October design! This is a tarot/spooky themed design for the best month of the year. Featuring a feline-skulled reaper, with a cat-claw scythe and a monarch butterfly companion. Please check out my shop if you're curious about getting this design on a shirt, sweatshirt, pillow, sticker, or more!

I can never decide whether or not to put photos up for sale in my shop, and I feel like putting all 20 million I take would be just a tad absurd, so I'm declaring a new rule. If a photo gets 15 notes on waterfall and/or 30 likes on instagram, I'll put it up for sale. Because I am nothing if not a pro at tricking other people and machines into making my decisions for me xD
(…) Where do you open?
Where do you carry your dead? There’s no locket
for that—hinged, hanging on a chain that greens
your throat. And the dead inside you, don’t you
hear them breathing? You must have a hole
they can press their gray lips to. If you open—
when you open—will we find them folded inside?
In what shape? I mean what cut shape is made
whole by opening? I mean besides the heart.
Maggie Smith, from “Heart“
