Once Upon a Time-April-Ivan Bilibin 1876-1942

The Russian artist IVAN BILIBIN is our April Once Upon a Time.


Baba Yaga, "Vasillisa the Beautiful" 1900

Ivan Bilibin was born in 1876 and died in 1942. He was interested in Slavic folklore and illustrated many children's books. He also designed costumes for theatrical productions like The Ballet Russe.

Please enjoy this artist and copy or be inspired by him and of course, let us see what you have done.

You got this up quick Janet. I really like the look of his style. Will investigate further. Thanks for doing the research and showing us another great illustrator.

Hi Janet and Jacqui

haven't heard of this guy before! I like learning about new artists. I'm looking forward to doing one, I hope.

I, too, had never heard of the last three illustrators...but they were actually quite well known in their day. Nice to bring them back so we can enjoy their work.

I posted Ivan Bilibin fast Jacqui because after I found him I collected bits and pieces over last month. Hope you like his work. Check out the video...it has a lot of his costume and set designing work.

I really like the look of this guy's work - love the colours and the style. Hope I get time to have a go at this.

Don't know where March went, seems like I blinked and the month was over, its been so busy. Ah well, a nice long weekend coming up hopefully time for painting and sketching!

Re: Once Upon a Time-April-Ivan Bilibin 1876-1942

Hi, Tyree, Inkyness and Mindbender. I, too, think he is a very nice illustrator, and for some reason have become fixated on the little mushrooms he seems to have in a lot of his paintings.
Hope you all can do one or two drawings. Always enjoy your work.

Lovely illustrations. Particularly like the patterns in the garments.

Pen study of Chinese men. A4 size. Hope to colour with ink or watercolours later.

Hope it loads as problems are present.

Re: Once Upon a Time-April-Ivan Bilibin 1876-1942

Very nice, June. Catches the mood so well and I love that dog. The patterns are so nice in his costumes...I'm thinking of a three kings Christmas card this year....stealing some of Mr. Bilibin's poses and prints. Shameless!

Here is some kind of wicked creature from"Rusalka":
