The Great Big Beautiful Podcast, Episode 55: Brian Froud

From Geek Dad

This week, legendary artist Brian Froud is featured. If you’re a fan of Jim Henson, puppetry, or fantasy art, then you’re already well aware of who he is. Froud worked with Henson on "The Dark Crystal", "Labyrinth", and "The Storyteller" as a conceptual and costume designer. 

It’s no exaggeration to say that he had a vital hand in determining the look and feel of those projects, especially the various species in "The Dark Crystal" and the goblins of "Labyrinth".

Froud continues to create amazing art and put out jaw-droppingly beautiful books such as Trolls, Faeries’ Tales, and the classic Faeries (with Alan Lee). His illustrations were also used in the recently reissued novelizations for his three Henson collaborations (from Archaia Press).

On this week’s show, Froud chats about his career, working with Jim Henson, the long-rumored sequels to "The Dark Crystal: and "Labyrinth", and collaborating with his wife Wendy (who, among many other accomplishments, sculpted the original Yoda puppet 
use in "The Empire Strikes Back").
