thanks to Bridget Strevens-Marzo for this great link to a fascinating illustrator. Originally from Sweden, he worked at Disney studios creating concept art for Snow White, Pinocchio and Bambi, and was also a prolific and highly successful illustrator of Children’s books in the US

early work looks like Arthur Rackham, later stuff more like Mary Blair. All done with amazing skill and attention to detail.
