Alan Aldridge

Feast your eyes on the opulent sumptuousness of Alan Aldrige's illustrations. When I was small I had several of his kid's books ("The Butterfly Ball" and 'The Peacock Party") and I would stare at his paintings for hours and hours. (He also did the artwork for Elton John's "Captain Fantastic" album.) It definitely helped define my artistic sensibilities.
