Merry Christmas Eve! And what a fitting way to celebrate that with David T Wenzel’s Christmas illustrations?
David is probably best known for his graphic novel of J.R.R. Tolkien’s ‘The Hobbit’, though he has worked for several major publishers with an impressive body of work. Here’s an excerpt from his Bio:
“A variety of artists and influences have helped form the core of David’s artistic vision. Illustrators like Arthur Rackham, Edmund Dulac, NC. Wyeth, and Howard Pyle top his list of influential artists. Pieter Bruegel and Jan Steen are among his favorite Dutch painters. Delving into history is one of David’s most profound passions. It not only inspires his artistic vision with its tales of adventure and indelible lessons, but it acts as a guide when creating fantasy. Fantasy becomes more credible when it connects to us through a familiar path.”
