Froudist


Before I left Orange I did a photo shoot with Hanli and Sophie, Sophie painted Hanli who modelled. The idea originally came from me suggesting a forest themed shoot with a forest nymphish type girl - and Hanli and Sophie elaborated on it!

Here's just one of my favourites from the shoot...


While I was doing the shoot I found myself thinking of this artist, Brian Froud. My sister Beki has always been a big Brian Froud fan, and we always had one of his books in my house when I was growing up. His drawings of faeries, pixies and goblins kind of freak me out... but I also really like them.

Here are some Brian Froud pieces...

I ADORE Brian's work!!!! He has a few books out where you just browse through the pages endlessly and are taken to another world.

I love faeries. Are there more photos available from your shoot, as I really admire the first you have there!!!

This is bizarre, because my surname is Froudist! I love Brian Froud's work as well...
