He later dis­cov­ered Brian Froud and Alan Lee’s book Faeries: “They be­came my favourite artists and through them I learned how to look for the magic in a land­scape,” he says.

Larry found other artists through them, too, in­clud­ing Arthur Rack­ham, John Bauer and Ed­mund Du­lac. “At about the same time I also dis­cov­ered Tolkien. I’ve been paint­ing this kind of na­ture-based fan­tasy ever since.”
