many things, not the least of which is loveable.

From The Book of Three, first in Lloyd Alexander's Chronicles of Prydain.

After their escape from Spiral Castle, Taran and Eilonwy meet up with a fellow escapee, the bard Fflewddur Fflam, whose enthusiastic eloquence is surpassed only by the scrupulous honesty of his magical harp, which breaks a string every time he tells a fib. This scene is meant to portray the moment the children begin to figure out this little eccentric detail.

This is just gorgeous - I love all the expressions. You have a very distinctive, non-Disney (*brr*) style. This is the first picture I've ever found of the wonderful Fflewddur Fflam and it's a beauty, so thank you! 12

This is a really great picture of Fflewwder (I can't spell names for the life of me) I read the last book and have had this almost scary obbsession with him (Fflewdder, if thats how I spell it) I can't find the books at the library! *bangs head against wall* Sorry, but your art will now be stared at for 15 minutes.

Fflewddur is by far my favorite character! He always seems to "color the truth"

Very, very, nice! And by the by, I found your pictures by googling 'Prydain'; and they were under more results from Elfwood.

Keep up the good work!

I think I saw this when i was younger as a cartoon film called 'The Black Cauldron', it seems there are many versions of it! You're pictures are wonderful and depict the story in such a delightful concept
