This dude has the coolest name. Besides that, Franz was an entrepreneur with many talents. Born and died in Germany he was a puppeteer, illustrator, playwright author along with many other things. His art and poetry were published in his own books. His art is what really struck me. He has characters but none have faces. Instead its just pansy flowers. Super trippy for a dude living in his time (1800s). This is a few works from his book that he wrote and did the illustrations for. The other gallery below is from another book. Super inspiring with all his different styles. Check him.
