Snork Rides a Pony
Artist: Lawson Wood
Lawson Wood (1878-1957) was an English painter, illustrator, and designer, known for his humorous depictions of animals. His book The Snork follows a tall, twisted-up bird, who joins a circus, gradually accepting his own appearance and untwisting. Wood's paintings graphically striking, a mixture of watercolor and flatter, opaque gouache. His characterization of the Snork reflects on his experience creating iconic images for advertisements and patriotic posters.
