--Brian Froud"I work intuitively, the images appearing before me and demanding attention, their meanings and voices unclear until much later, when the sketch or painting is done. This was the approach I used when I designed two of Jim Henson's movies: The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth. The scripts and characters developed organically from my sketches and paintings rather than the other way around."
