Freebie Image Gallery: Fantastic (Mythical) Beasts

It’s trite but true: a picture is worth a thousand words. In our emoticon-spouting, animated GIF meme-ing, Facebook-loving times, we communicate, more and more, through images. The Freebie Image Gallery features high-resolution images available through Devil’s Artisan, our very own Journal of the Printing Arts. DA’s Dingbats Section offers an ever-expanding selection of free, high-resolution, downloadable dingbats, ornaments and fanciful initials for your printed and online projects.

Today, we’re spicing things up by featuring a collection of fun mythical creatures, which you can use to add some symbolism to your design projects. Keep scrolling to meet these fantastic beasts!

Phoenix 1

The phoenix is a common symbol of rebirth and renewal.

Phoenix 2

Phoenixes are said to rise from their own ashes–or the ashes of their predecessors–to live anew.


The dragon is said to breathe fire and hoard gold in some European folklore.


The faun is a half-man, half-goat creature right out of Greek mythology.

White Bull

In Greek mythology, King Minos’s wife fell in love with a white bull, resulting in the birth of the Minotaur.


PortraitI hope you find a use for these mythical creatures in your next project. You never know where a bit of fantasy will take you! For high-resolution files of these images, and for more cool and curious dingbats to download, don’t forget to visit the Dingbats Section over at the Devil’s Artisan.
