People always ask me...where do you get your ideas?
Well, I guess I would have to say...the ideas are all around us~ waiting to be plucked and tweaked!
When I want to get into my head and tweak something, sometimes I will spend a couple of hours looking at the fabulous work of Illustrators. Some old, some new... although some of the old illustrations are the best!
One of my favorites of all time...Arthur Rackham
He is genius in my mind's eye!
Illustrator of Classics, Fable and Fantasy from the late 1800's to the 1930's. I would recognize his illustrations anywhere and you might too!
His Illustration of Mother Goose...One of my Personal Favorites!
How about...his interpretation of "Twas the Night Before Christmas"
He also is a famous illustrator for classics like "Alice in Wonderland", "Gulliver's Travel's", "A Christmas Carol"....and the list goes on...I love, love, love his illustrations of "Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens"
But my favorite would have to be "Wind in the Willows"
But it's more than just his intrepretation of a classic that I love...It's the energy that came out of him in bringing an illustration to life...
But none are better than his Crows!
Thank you Arthur Rackham! My world is a better place because of your art!
Have a great day~
