The two black and white (B&W) images below are frog illustrations by Arthur Rackham, who is one of my favorite artists. Both images were selected from Aesop’s Fable – A New Translation by V.S. Vernon Jones, published in 1912.

This first B&W image, I believe, is titled “The King’s Log” and complemented the fable “The Frogs Asking for a King“:
Here’s the artwork I derived from the image above. I entitled it “Frog Night Fun,” since the frogs look like they are having a grand time frolicking in the dark. Wild, huh? Looks better as larger image – make out more details. How ya like those frogs with red lips? Heheheh.
Now, here’s the other Arthur Rackham frog illustration, of which I don’t know the title, but it complemented the “The Ox and The Frog” fable:
And from that image, I derived this one that I entitled “Gramps Storytime” because the big frog reminds me of a granddaddy telling a story to his grandson, the little frog. In the fable, the big “old” frog puffs up so big, it explodes. Sad, but true, and kind of funny, too. LOL!
I know, you’re wondering why all the green. Well, I like green. :0) And, green looks good on frogs, and around frogs, and under frogs, and etc., etc….
Okay, that’s enough for now. Hope you enjoy my “digital frolic” and the free downloads, all Public Domain images, even mine – the “color” artwork by Patricia Spork that I release to the Public Domain. :0)
