This was done some time around 1985. I illustrated a series of fairy tales and used silhouettes on marbled backgrounds for the endpapers on all of them .

Slightly bewildering comment!
I'm 1949 so you're quite young.  :D

Many thanks for your comment and the faves.

Sorry about the bewildering comment. Gee you are only eight years older than me, so you are quite young too.
I do not comment on many images, I Love this! The Marbled paper is back!

Thats OK.  :)

Yep I've always loved marbling ever since I first came across it when I
was about 14- not so long ago it seems.  :D

Still being used in many ways, It is really neat to put the paint it in a clear glass, supported so a light can go underneath, the patterns lit and then photographed with a macro lens has many photographers fascinated.
Just recently a big thing for scrap makers and book makers, as well as the new fabric craze. I am seeing it everywhere today. I remember doing marbling as a child, also not so long ago it seems.:)

I think it has echoes of the psychedelicart of the late sixties, yet it
is not out of place in childrens books. If children don't do it
in school I really think that they should, my kids certainly enjoyed
it. :)

Yes it does have that 60s feel. :) I should introduce marbling my grand kids.
Have a great week!

This is rather old work- none the worse for that I think but I wouldn't want to go back to the style.

Many thanks for many faves  :)

Add me to the list of people who have this book! Even as a young child, the illustrations and designs stood out to me. Whenever I think of "Hansel & Gretel", these are the visuals that immediately come to mind.

I have the book that this picture is from and I have to say that it was always my favourite book of fairytales because of the beautiful illustrations. I still read it sometimes and I'm 20 now! You're very talented :)

OMG, I had a book of fairy tales that had this *exact* illustration in it! I'm...amazed to find the artist. I've always loved this one, though I'll admit that, when I was a child, the witch freaked me out. Maybe I shouldn't have been looking at it in the dark, though.

This is a classic piece, IMO. Gorgeous work.

Your front page says your name is John Patience...do you also go by the name Jan Pienkowski? I found a book of Fairy Tales books at a shop a couple of months ago with gorgeous illustrations that look a lot like this.

If not, that's cool, too. I just think its funny that I bought that book and then stumbled upon this piece. You have a great gallery, by the way!

No I'm afraid I'm not Jan Pienkowski, but your right my Hansel and Gretel is in the same style as his work.

Thanks for the compliment on my gallery :)
