According to contemporary reports (in the link above) Kalmakoff himself was a neurotic misogynist arse who shut his wife up in their house while he painted all day long. Still, lovely Hermes/Pied Piper.

I’m back in Australia, enjoying the peace and quiet. I’ve done a couple of things that I had left undone, including booking lodgings for World Fantasy. Now I just need to make sure I have enough warm clothing!
