There are two kinds of illustrators. Those, like myself who bend fine art and other forms into the service of illustration - and then there are illustrators like Niroot Puttapipat (a.k.a. Himmapaan) who follow in the rich tradition of book illustrators like Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac. In the handling of his art materials and command of realistic form, Puttapipat creates the type of images you can simply get lost in: which is why it is such a delight when he turns his pencil/pen/silverpoint to whimsical creations like these winged sauropods.

In some ways it's hard to believe that after 3 years of our Symbiartic blog and hundreds of posts and artists featured that we still haven't shown everyone we planned on showing in the beginning. This won't be the last time I try to share Niroot Puttapipat's marvelous work with you.
