"The Drafon's Tale" by Scott Gustafson
The Dragon's Tale
by Scott Gustafson

In The Dragon’s Tale, artist Scott Gustafson imagines this creature might be 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.

About Scott Gustafson

Whether he was to be a cartoonist, animator or an illustrator, Scott Gustafson knew from childhood that he wanted to draw pictures for a living. Once he discovered the artists of the Golden Age of Illustration, his early interest in animated cartoons gave way to trying to learn how to paint. Those renown illustrators opened up a world of dynamic and imaginative images that inspired the young art student and set him on an illustrator’s course.

Gustafson’s paintings have appeared on greeting cards, calendars, collector’s plates, limited edition prints, character designs for the animated TV series Chuggington, as well as on the cover of the Saturday Evening Post. But it is the world of illustration and the fun and challenge of telling stories with pictures that continually inspires him. Some of the books he has illustrated are Peter Pan, Classic Fairy Tales and Favorite Nursery Rhymes from Mother Goose, and Classic Bedtime Stories. He has also written and illustrated a novel for young readers entitled Eddie: The Lost Youth of Edgar Allan Poe.

Mr. Gustafson and his wife live in Chicago, and they have a dog, a cat, and a son, but not necessarily in that order.
