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

I love the ink drawing Janet. She does look scary as Tyree says. What's the story?

Rusalka was some sort of banshee, who danced in the moonlight, and lured men to their deaths beneath the water. Here is wikipedia with the whole story and the original picture.

Very interesting. Especially the part about there being a festival or Rusalka week when people were fobidden to go swimming in case the rusalkas lured them to their death.

Tyree, the color is just beautiful. What kind of colored pens are you using? This illustration was one of my favorites and your rendition is great.

Have to look for a Bilibin illustrated book...some library must have one, or maybe Amazon.
