I was reminded of the work by Brian Froud today. I didn't know of him personally, but remember his magnificent contributions to films such as the Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. I didn't realise he was a full time artist, and I've fallen in love with his work (which isn't surprising for me. I seemed to fall in love quite easily). Do you remember the film 'Labyrinth? With David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly? It was one my all-time favourite child movies, with Goblins and creatures galore, and probably one of the main reasons why I love fantasy. Well, Mr Froud done the art work for it. . .
Anyway, here's some of the work from Brian Froud. Both his wife and himself are artists and get their inspiration from Dartmoor (UK). My parents live not far from there and we've driven through the moors on numerous times. It is definitely an inspiring and enchanted place, and I can see how it works in favour for Mr Froud.
Enjoy and have a great weekend . . .
