Supposedly his work is rare and hard to find, has anyone got more illustrations by him?

What a lovely thread

I have started a small collection of vintage children's songbooks as they're my little girl's favorite books. The illustrations are often adorable:

^ Very interesting! Thanks for the link. I'm gonna see if ebay has that book. I read that he was born in Singapore, later moved to England and had such a hard time trying to live as an artist. He died in poverty I believe. What a pity his beautiful artwork did not echo his life.

thanks sofialuv!

sad story, tinuviel...and that happens so often.

but i read about andersen recently that though he was the most wealthy man after some hard time in his life...children from all over the world kept sending him dollars because he always depicted himself as 'the poor storyteller'!

i forgot tomi ungerer:

A little simple, perhaps, but I have always found these drawings by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (from The Little Prince) to be sweet, heartbreaking, and nostalgic all at the same time.








"Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them."

^ Can't see the pics, is it just me? I know them very well though, the Little Prince was one of my favourite childhood books! When I first read it I was amazed at his talent, gifted storyteller and illustrator.

Has anyone noticed the artwork in The Royal Tenenbaums? I think it was by Wes Anderson's brother, Eric Chase Anderson.
I love his work and it reminded me of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's illustrations. Wish I could find more of it.
