Durnwhip Grindylow by Keithwormwood Durnwhip Grindylow by Keithwormwood
Little fellows of the Grindylow peoples, who venture out into war torn fields where battles were recently fought. Snuffling about they collect the mugcurrants that grow amidst the fallen. When their bellies are pleasantly full they waddle home and promptly cook themselves into a delicious, thin stew. Durnwhips are poor conversationalists however and rarely, if ever, hold any company who can be present to sample this delicacy. Resultantly a Durnwhip stew is one of the most under appreciated dishes presently documented. The few critics of the Durnwhip stew also site post-consumption convulsions as a prime factor contributing to the meal's lack of popularity.

Also, just like many others have said, this is wonderfully Bosch-esque.

I love the crooked little description of the fish that cooks itself. Surely with a little training, it could be a better conversationalist. No mind, it is a fantastic creature, regardless.

It's really neat how have drawn influence from Boschian artwork but then took it and made it yours.
