Michael Hague (1948- ) is an American illustrator  He says of his work:

I count myself as one of the most fortunate of beings. For as an artist I have not only the pleasure but the duty to daydream. It is part of my work. I have been a contented day dreamer all of my life, often to the exasperation of those around me.

I have always wanted to be a book illustrator. Books are what got me interested in the art field in the first place. I try to infuse my illustrations with the same spirit that the author or the story produced in my imagination. I strive to create something from an empty canvas that becomes a whole ‘other world’ that people can visit for a while and totally believe in. That challenge of bringing a subject to life and making it believable – and that’s what is exciting to me as an artist. It doesn’t matter whether it is a Greek myth or an American legend, my approach is the same, to try and blend fantasy with realism.
