In "The Dragon’s Tale," artist Scott Gustafson imagines this creature might be the last surviving dragon, telling his tale to a wizard who is the keeper of all dragon knowledge. With infinite patience, deep into the night, he records the dragon’s history. Dragons are ubiquitous in mythology around the world, sometimes evil, sometimes good and sometimes misunderstood gentle giants. They are often associated with wisdom and longevity so the scribe and his little friend will be together for a good long while.

Observant fans of Gustafson’s work will recognize this diminutive dragon from high in a tree branch in Gustafson’s 2009 Fine Art Canvas, "A Confabulation of Dragons" (Sold Out at Publisher). The wizard’s study is filled with dragon decor such as the skull, the scales in the bowl, dragon claws and the incense burner. That’s a meadowsweet plant in the left corner, which is thought to have been sacred to the Druids and featured in Welsh folklore. And so the dragon spins out his stories, a millennium of adventures, triumphs and sorrows and the wizard commits them to the written word and eternal life. Own a piece of dragon lore and décor with this spectacular new release from Scott Gustafson.


Scott Gustafson
Storytelling through pictures has always held a certain fascination for Scott Gustafson; be they the moving images in animated cartoons, or the epic illustrations of N. C. Wyeth. Upon entering the Chicago Academy of Fine Art, Scott was 99% sure that he wanted to become an animator, but it was that 1% that ultimately drew him more and more into the world of stretched canvas and oil paint. "As an animator, "Gustafson says, "your contribution to a given film is, by necessity, limited to whatever character you've been assigned. But as an illustrator, you're responsible for locations, sets, costumes, props, lighting and character designs, not to mention the overall mood and emotion of a given painting. It's about the best job there is." Over the nearly twenty-five years that span his career, he has had the opportunity to fulfill commissions for a number of varied clients and publishers such as Celestial Seasonings, Playboy magazine, Saturday Evening Post, The Bradford Exchange, DreamWorks and The Greenwich Workshop. His illustrated books include The Night Before Christmas, Peter Pan, Nutcracker, as well as two original titles, Animal Orchestra and Alphabet Soup. His newest release, Classic Fairy Tales, was recently awarded a Chesley award for best interior book illustrations from the Association of Science Fiction and Fantasy Artists and is currently in its third printing.
