Exceptionally beautiful work for a fairytale.

Gerry Embleton started making comics at the age of 15, working on comics like “Strongbow the Mighty” (1958), Davy Crockett, Kit Carson and Kansas Kid (1959-62).
He worked closely with his brother Ron Embleton.
From 1961 onwards, he was better known for the comics he made in full colour, including “Riders of the Range”, “Stingray”, “Colonel Pinto” and, above all, “Dan Dare”. He also made “Olac the Gladiator”, which was later continued by Don Lawrence.
He was also known for his illustrations for e.g. 'Look and Learn'.

In the Seventies, he focused more on his work as an illustrator, but he simultaneously also worked on comics (including Catweazle)

He made these beautiful fairy tale watercolours for the magazine O.U.T. around 1970. Beautiful quality! The scans don’t do the beautiful colours justice.
