Artist Series - Day 4: John Bauer

John Bauer is one of my favorite illustrators from the "Golden Era" of 20th century illustration.  He's probably best known for trolls.

I love the old-school pen and watercolour look.  It was basically all I tried to do for my first couple of years in art school, when, of course, my draftsmanship was nowhere near good enough to pull it off.  I actually wouldn't mind revisiting the style, either traditionally, or using photoshop.
