Scary? naked witch

No Comments

Okay, I don’t do the nude very much on the blog even though I draw it a lot.  Many great artworks depicting witches show them nude for several reasons.  Witches worshiped naked to have a closer connection with nature around them, to remove obstacles between themselves and magic.  The Garderian tradition of Wicca documented and brought nude worship practices to the public eye in the mid 20th century.  Critics of Wiccan covens of this time sometimes commented that the religion was only a smoke screen for nudity and lewd behaviors.  Nude depictions of witches were also used by more prudish sensibilities as way to show witches as evil and depraved.

Hey there.  Taylor & Francis has this service for authors called eprints, i.e. free copies for authors to give round of their article.  Since I edit a journal under the T&F umbrella and tend to publish there most often, I have a whole handful of articles with available eprints just sitting around, not getting used.

Do you want to read some professional library literature written by yours truly?  If you do, each of these links will get you to a free article until they are used 50 times.  Have at it.
