Johana Molina, is a self-taught artist, illustrator and creator behind “Rustles from the Meadow” based in Chile. Inspired by nature she features melancholic creatures and illustrations with a dusty and muted fantasy of tiny worlds.
This piece is part of Johana's "Realm of Lullabies" collection that features the hope, illusion, and magic that small and tender details of everyday life transmit. A flower, the song of a bird or a soft lullaby can convey the most hopeful feelings in the most unsettling moments and can become more powerful than the darkest forces if we let them show you the light at the end of the road. “In a world far away, where darkness looms from the corners. Little defenseless creatures live in hope, hidden from evil in their little helpless worlds. The tinkling of the rattles holds a magical and exceptional power to combat lurking shadows. Any reasonable little animal has a rattle at hand and knows how to sing a good lullaby to protect itself in dark times "
