Precisely drawn vector illustrations of the hobgoblins. Hobgoblins are household spirits or fairies in European folktales.

The two illustrations have been found in an old book of fairy tales, which was issued at the  beginning of the 20th century. They are related to the fairy tale about the hobgoblins, so we named them after these little creatures. The etimology of the term ’hobgoblin’ - HOB(BIT)=a benevolent spirit + GOBLIN=an evil spirit - indicates that a hobgoblin is a creature embodying the struggle between good and evil. On one side they can be benevolent and merry in nature, and on the other, fond of mischievous pranks and practical jokes, even frightening and dangerous.
