I have always been a long time fan of John Bauer's work, who is a Swedish painter as well as illustrator, but more than that, his one-of-a-kind artistic outlook is so stunning that when I was young and even now, can still blow me away with its strangeness and wonder. I was so fond of Princess Tuvstarr, with her fairy-like elegance and I used to wish I was a part of her world.
