Well, I've blogged about

Beasts! Book 2, and I've blogged about Lilli Carré’s The Lagoon, so I might as well blog about Lilli Carré’s contribution to Beasts! Book 2.

Here's a badly cropped scan to her contribution:

That's the tikbalang from the Philippines, a "nocturnal man-horse" with "legs so long that, when it sits, its knees extend up above its head." It tries to trick travelers off their paths, and can assume a human form to do so.

It's a really cool-looking monster, and I like Carré’s highly detailed forest and her use of color here.
