Vitazko and the Griffin by Douglasbot Vitazko and the Griffin by Douglasbot
This is the first in a new weekly project i've set for myself; each week i'll pick a folktale, a creature, a hero or myth and illustrate the heck out of it, because who doesn't love metal, monsters, beards and chainmail? Nobody, thats who.

You can follow me on Twitter (@douglasbot) for updates or, you know, come back in a week for the next topic!

You already know I dig the hell out of this, so I don't think I need to repeat myself...

O.K. I have to ask... why did you call him "vitazko" ?

Thanks. How did you ever come across this ? Do you collect stories from the old continent ? (reads a little further...) Ha ! I knew it : If you read Preface again it says : "The first two stories ("Twelve Months,"
" Vftazko ") have been retold by the novelist
Bozena Nemcov4 (from the Slovak)." Božena Němcová is a classic novelist from czech romanticism, also collecting folk tales...
