Barnaby Walters: You’ve heard of biblically accurate angels, now get ready for bowl-accurate demons (cc @apocrypals)

That first one was definitely the funniest, but the some of the other bowl-demons are pretty great too.

There’s a bit more detail about exactly what’s going on in this article.

I’m surprised how timeless and appealing these little drawings are. They avoid a lot of the foibles which make a lot of late antique/medieval art look dated, and the exaggerated proportions, noodly limbs and googly eyes wouldn’t be out of place in a webcomic or cartoon.

I also love that these bowls refer to themselves as “amulets”. Next time someone describes something as an “amulet” in a novel or TTRPG I’m definitely going to imagine it as an inverted bowl with a googly-eyed stick figure demon on.
