THE VODNIK ~ My illustration for the first volume of BEASTS (2006), edited by Jacob Covey.  According to legend, the Russian water ghoul known as the Vodnik can be found lurking in or around certain dark forest lakes.  It might be disguised as a floating log, or rise from the murk in the form of a foul, bearded old man. The ghosts of his previous victims can often be glimpsed in the surrounding forest, gazing out from behind the black, twisted trees.
