William Heath Robinson is my favorite of the Robinson brothers, illustrators of the golden age of book illustration. And the 1914 A MidSummer-Night's Dream is my favorite book of his, and maybe of all time. I am so enamored of this book and the beautiful use of negative space with perfectly rendered ink drawings. There are many illustrations in this book, and my time is limited, so I'm going to post only ten images at a time over the next couple of weeks.

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.
