Conan by Memed
“A devil from the Outer Dark,” he grunted.  “Oh, they’re nothing uncommon.  They lurk as thick as fleas outside the belt of light which surrounds this world.  I’ve heard the wise men of Zamora talk of them.  Some find their way to Earth, but when they do, they have to take on earthly form and flesh of some sort.  A man like myself, with a sword, is a match for any amount of fangs and talons, infernal or terrestrial.”

— Robert E. Howard, “The Vale of Lost Women”

BRIAN FROUD

1947-

Country of Origin: England

Training: Maidstone College of Art

Notable Works: Faeries (1979), The Dark Crystal (1982), Labyrinth (1986)

Inspired heavily by his surroundings in Dartmoor, Brian Froud is best known for his fantasy work, most notably in the realm of faeries, goblins, and other creatures from Celtic folklore. Perhaps most famously, he worked with Jim Henson to develop the characters, look, and feel to two fantasy movies, The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth, which heavily featured (and in the case of the Dark Crystal, exclusively) the use of puppetry. He is married to Wendy Froud, a doll maker and designer who also produces faerie-inspired work.
