Bilibin's Bugbear

Ivan Bilibin (1876 - 1942) was Russian artist, prominent among the illustrators working on revolutionary magazines during the abortive 1905 revolution.  Bilibin worked on a magazine called The Bugbear, and this is the mascot he drew for the publication.

Bilibin is one of my favourite illustrators.
