One of the best things about working on this blog is discovering new artists. Burrowing down into the internet this week I found illustrator and children’s book author Benjamin Lacombe. He published his first book – “Cherry & Olive” – in 2006 at the age of 24 and has produced a half dozen more since then.
His work is beautiful, dreamlike, and a little melancholy – a winning combination – as he explores the darker side of fairytales.
