Oh, are they? With a name like Rackham I thought they might be English.

 

I think it's the proportions. Whenever a young hero shows up in Astérix, he always seemd to have those sort of proportions and gestures: a thin waist, a wider chest, slightly exaggerated, sinuous curves on the arms and legs, and yes, blonde hair rather like that.

I see what you mean! Yep, I thought so too originally (re the name). The owner named the company in homage to Arthur Rackham. The line is influenced by other British artists such as my personal favorite, Gary Chalk (of Games Workshop and Talisman 1st and 2nd edition fame).

 

Mr Chalk actually contributed concept art and various pieces for their RPG offering "Cadewallon". I think the French are certainly now the masters of dark fantasy and weird childrens fables. I love this series on terrifying childrens books by the Guardian:
