Brian Froud is a worldwide famous illustrator of fairy tale- and fantasy figures. He worked on the 'Faeries' book and on the movies 'The Dark Crystal'
and 'Labyrinth' by Jim Henson and featuring David Bowie.
For these movies Brian designed the dolls, sceneries and props.

Wendy Froud is a talented doll artist who worked on several animation
movies. She designed Yoda for 'The Empire Strikes Back' and is the
