Norman Lindsay

As a child I loved the paintings, drawings and etchings of Australian artist Norman Lindsay, his apparent preoccupation with a world of fantasy and legend, and his quirky buxom women. And I’d had his children’s book The Magic Pudding, unaware that its author and illustrator was one and the same as was responsible for the aforementioned artworks until quite later on.

Aubrey Beardsley

Coming from a dark and troubled past I was attracted to the work of Aubrey Beardsley when I was young. Here are a few of his ink drawings, which I still like for their masterly balance of positive and negative shapes, and light and dark.
