M. C. Escher did the picture that was featured in 'Labyrinth' and was part of the castle in Goblin City. I've wanted a copy of that print for ages.

My favourite artist is definitely Brian Froud, he has such a vivid imagination and pays fine attention to every little detail. He always has such a lot going on in his large compositions, he creates an entire different world.

I love Franz Marc, as his favourite subject was animals, and he cared so much for them. I loved his use of surreal colours. I was so upset to find out he was killed in combat in World War II.

Froud is amazing! I only have his Good Fairies/bad Fairies book but i wish I own more of his stuff.

Other artists I like are Edward Gorey and Tim Burton...

"Ballad of Serenity"
Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I dont care, I'm still free
You cant take the sky from me...
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't comin' back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me
There's no place I can be
Since I found Serenity
But you can't take the sky from me

I agree with you, Pious, about Tim Burton - Nightmare Before Xmas is one of my favourite movies and I have the book which shows all his original drawings and the set and character designs. My dream would have been to have worked on that film!

My favourite work of his, is The Accolade.

Yeah, my friend bought me the book (the published poem really) and I think its such a brilliant childrens book with its lavish design and illustrations. I am a fan of the film as well. In fact, right now I'm wearing one of my many NMBC t shirts

I've been obsessed by the film even before it came out - the imagination of Tim Burton is like no other, he creates pure magic! And every time I watch it I just admire those many artists who worked on it more and more. I have the original poem too, and this other book I have is more of the making of the film from the start of production to the end.  

Wish I could walk through the forest and find the doors! What I like about his artwork is the way he uses loads of lines to create patterns.

I have the book Good/Bad faeries, and would like to collect all Froud's other books too. I have his faery oracle. Labyrinth is one of my favourite films, which is based on his artwork too. His son was Toby and what a cutie!
