Ray Bradbury (22.08.1920 - 05.06.12)

Sad news this week with the passing of Ray Bradbury. I was a big fan of his books, especially The Illustrated Man which was the book I focused on as part of my Higher English studies. Its a book I've always doodled around illustrating images for and I think will be the next book I tackle after finishing The Enchanted Wood.

Ray Douglas Bradbury (August 22, 1920 – June 5, 2012) was an American fantasy, horror, science fiction, and mystery writer. Best known for his dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451 (1953) and for the science fiction stories gathered together as The Martian Chronicles (1950) and The Illustrated Man (1951), Bradbury was one of the most celebrated 20th-century American writers of speculative fiction. Many of Bradbury's works have been adapted into television shows or films.
