Description
When the king learned that his precious princess Briar Rose had been cursed to prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and sleep for a hundred years, says Scott Gustafson, he commanded every single one of the ominous devices in the kingdom to be destroyed. And so they were except for one... It is exactly one century to the day and a young prince has come to see for himself if the ancient, thorn-shrouded castle is truly enchanted. Tiptoeing past the sleeping guards and up the grand staircase, he enters a darkened chamber. The mists of time swirl about his feet as light sifts through the overgrown windows. Drawing back the heavy curtain, he falls instantly in love with the sleeping princess who has been waiting, just for him, for one hundred years.

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.
