Art from the book A Monster Calls written by Patrick Ness and illustrated by Jim Kay.
It’s a children’s book about a boy (Conor) who starts having nightmares about a monster every night since his mother started her cancer treatment. One night when he wakes up, there is an actual monster right outside his window. The monster is a yew tree in the cemetery behind Conor’s house during day-time but the monster we see at night. I wont go into more detail about the story because it’s really worth reading. You might want to have some tissues and ice-cream ready though.
It was inspired by Siobhan Dowd, who passed away due to cancer and could not write this book herself

Sinistra, drawn in PS.
I’ve been wanting to remake this for a long time, so I finally did. Sinistra means “left.” In ancient bird flight divination, the sky was divided into four parts, and the left (and most ominous) part was called the sinistra.
