Christian Birmingham is an illustrator whose work I have long admired. His talent is obvious in the way he combines color, composition, atmosphere and drama in all of his work, to bring you into a world of fantasy and make it believable. He has illustrated classic fairy tales such as the Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty,, the Snow Queen, and many others. Although not technically ‘classical fine art’, I find myself very inspired by Birmingham’s work, all done in pastels. Enjoy!
