My Favorite Illustrators Part 1

Sir Arthur Rackham

He was the Olympian of Fairy Tale Illustrators, in my opinion. I especially love the way he drew wrinkles and folds in clothing. I once wrote an end of the year essay on Rackham. I was the only student in my class to do so... (Hey, tip for the wise, if you want your professor to give you an A and do so because they are impressed by you, choose a topic that no one else has ever thought of... It's not trying to be teacher's pet, it's trying to stick out and not be average) I discovered his illustrations my first year of College. The first illustration of his that I saw was of a tree man and a woman in a grey dress. I still love that illustration!

Google Him! You'l
l be amazed!
