Eyvind Earle

I had never heard of Eyvind Earle until a few days ago when I saw this blog post by eMORFES (and you should be following that blog if you aren’t already; they find the most beautiful and interesting art I’ve ever seen).

Earle was a prolific artist and lived from 1916 to 2000. He illustrated books, designed magazine covers and worked in animation, both on his own and with Disney (including Sleeping Beauty). He had a fascinating life and you can read about it on his official website here.
