A World of Vampires: Soucouyant

These illustrations are part of a series of commissions I've been doing for a friend of mine. She discovered that every culture in the world has some sort of Vampire-creature legend, telling of beings or spirits who suck the blood or life energy of the living. So, she decided to write a series of novellas, each one featuring a different culture's vampire in a different location around the world.

This story features the soucouyant, a creature drawn from the folklore of the old Caribbean, and takes place during the early 18th century, when piracy and geoncide were rampant around the islands.
