Anne-Catherine de Froidmont, famed Belgian artist, exploring the wilds of America.

One of the finest illustrators and artists of third-wave prog, the well-beloved Anne-Catherine de Froidmont of Belgium, has a birthday today.  What better way to celebrate the very expansiveness and wholesomeness of third-wave prog than by celebrating the life and art of de Froidmont!

She is, simply put, an incredible talent.  I know of no other current sketch artist who captures the real essence of a person so perfectly.  I’m guessing this is because her soul is immensely generous, and she sees the best in all around her.

Here’s just a small sampling of her excellence:
