In Scottish folklore, a kelpie is a shape-shifting water spirit that may take the form of horse in order to drown anyone foolish enough to try to ride them. This comic by cartoonist Emma Weakley imagines a particularly tragic encounter between two young boys and one of those horse-shaped monsters.

Be sure to go to Weakley‚Äôs DeviantArt gallery (where she goes by porcelianDoll) to see her kelpie art in its full glory ‚ÄĒ as well as her other artwork. You can also follow her on Tumblr.
