Yakshagana Illustration

I made this Illustration of Yakshagana (Carnatic Folk), which was given as a gift to the performers.
Yakshagana is a theater form that combines dance, music, dialogue, costume, make-up, and stage techniques with a unique style and form. This theater style, resembling Western opera, is mainly found in the coastal districts and the Malenadu region of Karnataka, India. Yakshagana is traditionally presented from dusk to dawn. (Yes, I copy pasted it from wikipedia ;)
