Sensibilities - Myths and Legends of Russia: the Illustrations
Let us have more pictures, shall we? Several of us are experiencing December blues and quite unable to rouse ourselves to the spirit of the season. I hope these may provide a few moments' entertainment at the very least. I never did manage to post these illustrations here. Cross-posted at told_tales and storybookland I feel so silly and awkward sometimes, posting these things in communities; especially having to sign off with my name as the illustrator. 'She waved her right hand, and lakes and woods appeared; she waved her left hand, and various birds began to fly about'Illustration for The Frog Princess. 'I'm Rumbling Thunder! 'Ivashko too walked and walked, and met the three-headed dragon'Illustration for The Three Kingdoms. ‘The fox is carrying me away … Cat Cotonaevich, rescue me!’ Unlike that tale, however, in which Chanticleer manages to outwit the fox in the end, this one does not end happily for the cock. This is one of two of the earliest illustrations which I completed.
