 (more - this includes a comment from Gene Deitch)

From the blogger:

"...his amazing watercolors are a cross between chinese traditional watercolors, the minimalist japanese painting-style and the czech rich culture in illustration. hanak was famous for his distinctive illustrations with natural themes, portraying life of plants and animals with broad watercolor strokes mixed with beautifully balanced finer brushwork on rice paper, all that in stunning compositions and colors full of life."

Quote from Hanák:

"There are many people who love nature and don't run around the woods with a flintlock, but I stubbornly cling to the observation that there are times and places where only hunters meet. I know for a fact that if it weren't for the rifle, all my work would surely have taken different paths. We have had things together that I find beautiful and important that I must tell of.."

  Forgot to say: I can't imagine why he was never a finalist for the Hans Christian Andersen Award. Personally, I don't think the work of Jiří Trnka (who WON the award) can hold a candle to Hanák's, but what do I know?
