The divine Ms. Z herself:
The Little Mermaid:
Alice in Wonderland:
I love the perspective she creates, and the vast amount of space she leave blank.. you can often see her pencil marks, another something I always find charming in artwork. I love seeing the "thinking" and the hand of the artist, stray marks, drips etc..
I wish she had a website, I could not find one, if anyone knows.. let me know.. I've collected a whole mess of her books, and I look often at them for the creative inspiration sometimes..
I toyed, in college with children's illustration, but that meant and extra year at least of college, and I was ready to move on..I keep a sketch book and sometimes break the old gauche paint and ink pens out. It's charming, contemplative work..
