Inspiration Friday 1: Edmund Dulac

Posted on 13 Jan 2012 in Artist, Illustrators | 0 comments

Lately I’ve taken an interest in 1900 European style book illustration. My interest in comic illustration has peaked once again (it comes and goes depending on the decaded) and found a lot of comic artist are inspired by the past. I’ve come across a lot of great children book illustrators and thought it would be a good idea to record down who I’ve come across.
