All illustrations by Ivan Jakovlevič Bilibin and last one by Tímea Cserny
Bilibin is one of the first master illustrators that my drawing mentor showed me to teach me how to use colours. His craft in using ton sur ton is amazing, simple and clean, perfect to tell stories. And, ça va sans dire, I’m obsessed with his perfect talking frames, not only decorative but often also essential to the understanding of the plot or just so beautiful to look at.
What an endless inspiration.
