This is the frontispiece for a 1906 edition of Nimphidia, the Court of Faerie, a gouache painting by Thomas Maybank. The book featured the poem of a faerie company, written in 1627 by Michael Drayton, a friend of Shakespeare, no less.

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
