Sketching – Wendigo

I was reading up on the wendigo legend recently, and was surprised to learn there’s a real-world condition called ‘Wendigo psychosis.’  In a nutshell, the sufferer experiences a craving for human flesh, while also fearing becoming a cannibal.  Apparently, historical reports exist of people attacking and completely devouring men, women and children, even when not strictly necessary to avoid starvation.  I should also mention it’s been hotly debated whether or not the condition actually exists.  If it does, though… creepy.
