Getting superstitious with Sally Mullaney

Getting superstitious with Sally Mullaney

Our trilogy of Inktober artists finishes on a very high note with Sally Mullaney’s super fun and charming illustrations. Sally graduated with a degree in Illustration from the University of Plymouth, and is now working freelance in the north west of England. For Inktober, she decided to set her own prompts, and doodled a different superstition each day. These folklore-inspired drawings will be sure to bring a lil bit of silliness to your day. We love ‘em! You can follow her on Instagram here and see her portfolio here.

We hope you feel inspired or even just found some joy from our mini Inktober series. The three artists we have featured have all been extremely different to each other in terms of style, concept and technique, but are all united by the wonder of Inktober. Let this be a lil reminder that no matter how different we may be when it comes to our practices, or even just how different we are as people, we are all connected by creativity. All of us together in a little colourful creative bubble. How cool is that?

If your apron strings come undone whilst baking, your lover is thinking of you.

If you sit at the corner of the table, you may never marry.

To cut off both ends of the loaf will cause the devil to fly over your house.

If a child rides on a bear's back, they will be protected from whooping cough.

If you want to prevent evil spirits from entering your home, just stick pins into an onion and leave it on your windowsill.

If you leave a white tablecloth on the table overnight, expect a death in the morning.

When your cupboard doors are left open, people are gossiping about you.

If you pierce the loaf of a pregnant woman, her child will have their eyes poked out.
