Warwick Goble

The Lady and the Dragon


Leda and the Swan

Goblin Market

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Warwick Goble (1862-1943), a London native who was what some refer to as a peach-- White on the outside, yellow on the inside. He created illustrations for fairytale books, and was particularly fond of Japanese and Indian stories. These are just a few of my favorites of his.

I just love his soft, dreamy style. He's successfully made the list of Mikaela's Personal Heroes (tactfully abreviated MPH, like the noise you make when someone punches you in the stomach). After all, his name IS Warwick. I simply can't ignore a name as cool as Warwick.
