- Sonia Delaunay

As a fun addition to my previous article on W. W. Denslow, here’s a piece on The Design Inspiration that has collected some contemporary artists’ interpretations of the major characters form the Wizard of Oz book and film: 25 Various Styles of The Wizard of Oz Illustrations.

To this list you can add Nancy Dorser, Marvel Comics’ Skottie Young and Image Comics’ Enrique Fernández (also here).
