Moominhouse of Dark Shadows

Wikipedia defines "The Moomins" as (checks notes) "the central characters in a series of books and a comic strip by Swedish-speaking Finnish illustrator Tove Jansson, originally published in Swedish by Schildts in Finland." I had to look that up because I live in America and we have no idea what's going on in the rest of the world unless it involves flaming oil derricks or Benedict Cumberbatch. We're a self-centered people.

So, when @lunettarose tweeted a six-page mashup of Dark Shadows and The Moomins my next stop of Wikipedia. Her art project is called The Collins and, while I still haven't hunted down any of the books to see The Moomins for myself, it felt like a bad idea to let my procrastination (that tweet happened more than a week ago) keep you from her art. It's pretty wonderful.

You can download a PDF of the full mashup in the tweet below.
