:clap: Hi everyone. Welcome to the children's illustrators project for November 09.
This month's artist is Arthur Rackham. For all you folks who like the faery realm!!
Arthur Rackham (19 September 1867 – 6 September 1939) was an English book illustrator.
We can copy his work, or do something 'in the style of', or maybe a new illustration to one of the stories he illustrated.
Looking forwad to seeing the art!:D

Oh, I didn't know it was him who did Alice in the Wonderland and Wind in the Willows. He has such superb drawings! Will definitely give it a try. I'm glad this is a month long thread and not 2 weeks thread. Thank you, June, for the intro.

Here's my first attempt at an Arthur Rackham - of course, being a Teddy-fanatic it had to be the Three Bears for me! :cat:

Hi Inky, that is a terrific bear study. :thumbsup: :clap: :clap:
I like Rackham's animal work too. And then the little elves and pixies are good. I think he will be fun to study.;)

Nice on Inky -
I was not paying attention and papa bears hands were not table level so I sketched in another chair.

Lovely bears, Robin and great background paintings too! :clap:

Very nice yellows, Inky. Your mama and papa bear are so contented compared to Robin's bears who look a bit shocked at the table manners of baby bear. Robin, great color combos! Inky, like the volume you gave to your bears too.

I like his style of artwork.;)

Inky, Robin, June, your contributions this month are inspiring.

Thank you Lawrence, you're very kind.
June, that's a fabulous study. :clap:
I have just finished another and will post tomorrow when I get it uploaded to the computer.

You are a wonderful illustrator June. Here's mine...Puck in Midsummer Nights Dream. Pen, water color and crayon.

Lovely to find this Rackham thread -- and what wonderful work everyone has done! :thumbsup:
I think his work lends itself to more freedom and looseness, as I see how much enjoyment is in all the work posted up. :clap:
I hope this thread continues into December, as then I might have a chance to participate.
Might be nice to try other Victorian illustrators for future threads?

Hi Janet, Puck looks so happy and impish. I am sure he's up to making trouble. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
Lauren, you can still post to this thread even though its a November project and we start another illustrator for December. We don't close threads as such!!
Many thanks for the comments on my study of the Alice illustration. It was a treat to copy. His fabulous animals are brilliant. I wonder if I can find any Rackham illustrated books when I go into town tomorrow...in the second-hand stores!:D

Lovely illustration of Puck there Janet - he looks really lively and appealing. :clap:

I'm late, I'm late, For a very important date. No time to say "Hello." “Goodbye”. I'm late, I'm late, I'm late.
It's been great fun this month! I'm off to check out the new December thread. :wave:

That is a beautiful illustration study, Inky!! A great use of colour.
Arthur Rackham has been a good illustrator to visit!!

This Derivian liquid pencil sepia permanent has such a viscosity that it's not easy to pick it up with a thin brush. That's why I needed color pencils for the details. Very difficult medium. But I could see it'd be useful for dinosaurs. :lol:
This last one is just Daniel Smith watercolor, Faber Castell Polychromos Colored pencils, Pentel Pocket Calligraphy brushpen.
