Kwaidan by redredundance Kwaidan by redredundance
Another Illustration assignment... I think this is my best piece this semester o 3o
Just an illustration for the book 'Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things', a rather old collection of japanese folk tales and insect studies. This one of course illustrates Yuki-onna, the snow maiden. I really wanted this piece to be vertical but it's prolly best this way. Maybe I'll do something more vertical later in life. hm...

By the way, I would love to get this book, but there are many books with that title. Can you give me an author name or more details?

The book is called Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange Things by Lafcadio Hearn.

This is from one particular story which was also one of the featured four from the movie version (Criterion Collection) Which I recommend. This is one stunning piece of work an would LOVE to be able to feature this when I do a review of the movie and book for my blog!
