- Full Description
Filled with sketches, water colors, pen and ink roughs, from his comic book days (Hawkman, Avon covers and those lovely ”contents pages”), to studies for commissions of famous people, include presidents and Dr. Seuss. ERK is just amazing; he was inspired by the fine line work of James Montgomery Flagg, whom he befriended later in life, and he had one of the longest and most rewarding careers in commercial illustration and fine art. Never before collected work, a perfect companion to the JVJ book that we also handle.
"I fell in love with sketching at about the age of ten. The importance and joy in drawing, recording impressions, is invaluable as it builds and enlarges the artist’s power of observation and thinking. There is a difference between looking and SEEING. The lure of today’s high-tech cameras and Photoshop is tempting and seductive, but it discourages drawing from life. Do not be fooled, as there is NO substitute for training the eye, whose vision grows sharper and, where it is used, stimulates the imagination. We are all of us students, chewing on a bone.”
There is also a new exhibit catalog from the Norman Rockwell Museum, which we have just discovered and will be offering also. Totally different book!
