I will kill you, Father of the Gods. I will wait until the end of all things, and I will eat the sun and I will eat the moon. But I will take the most pleasure in killing you." Fenrir, inspired by @neil-gaiman‘s Norse Mythology. Finished the wonderful book and finally got to finish the drawing. I love him.' (2017)
