BRIAN FROUD

1947-

Country of Origin: England

Training: Maidstone College of Art

Notable Works: Faeries (1979), The Dark Crystal (1982), Labyrinth (1986)

Inspired heavily by his surroundings in Dartmoor, Brian Froud is best known for his fantasy work, most notably in the realm of faeries, goblins, and other creatures from Celtic folklore. Perhaps most famously, he worked with Jim Henson to develop the characters, look, and feel to two fantasy movies, The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth, which heavily featured (and in the case of the Dark Crystal, exclusively) the use of puppetry. He is married to Wendy Froud, a doll maker and designer who also produces faerie-inspired work.

Did y’all know that L M Montgomery saw a picture of model Evelyn Nesbit in a magazine, cut it out, and used it as a reference for what Anne (with an E!) Shirley should look like?

It would be lovely to sleep in a wild cherry-tree all white with bloom in the moonshine… You could imagine you were dwelling in marble halls.— Anne of Green Gables, by Lucy Maude Montgomery.
