noctivagant

I would normally sketch on paper but decided for this word to sketch in Photoshop.

I must admit, I had help with the Photoshop brushes – one came from ComputerArts and the other from obsidian dawn.
Notice the bearger..

noctivagant \noc-tiv-A-gant\ , adjective;
1. Pertaining to going about in the night; night-wandering.

Quotes:
My mother whelped me in a mess of blankets while my noctivagant father towed in the big ships. His was the night vessel, the vessel on oily waters, his was the light shining in the darkness, come home, come home.
— Jeanette Winterson, Gut Symmetries

Origin:
Noctivagant is formed from two Latin roots, noctis, “night”, and vagans, “to wander about.”
