Description
Scott Gustafson's enchanting interpretation of the fabled Greek legend tells of Athena, Goddess of Wisdom, giving the winged stallion Pegasus to the Muses of Mt. Helicon. In this excitement at meeting the Muses, Pegasus struck the side of the mountain with his hooves, causing a spring known as the Hippocrene. Springs were considered sacred sources of inspiration, and the Muses' beloved pet, Pegasus, was a symbol of high-flying poetic imagination. Pegasus and the Muses will undoubtedly inspire flights of fancy for collectors, young and old.

The Artist

Scott Gustafson

Scott Gustafson's earliest artistic ambition was to become an animator. But by the time he entered high school, he became acquainted with artists from the Golden Age of Illustration. Great illustrators like N.C. Wyeth, Norman Rockwell, Maxfield Parrish and Arthur Rackham opened a door onto a world of beautiful images that continue to inspire him to this day. Lingering dreams of making animated films, however, led Scott to major in animation at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts. It wasn't until after leaving art school that the possibility of a career as a freelance illustrator began to truly appeal to him.

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.
