The Art of Bernie Fuchs by The Illustrated Press, Inc. - IssuuDavid, this is splendid news and I can think of nobody better positioned to have written this book. Summer now seems so far away. My travels and travails kept me otherwise occupied since when last you visited. I'd like to discuss a matter that, I believe, will interest you. Please contact me at the address other than Google.
The Life and Art of Bernie Fuchs
Bernie Fuchs was one of the most successful, awarded and imitated illustrators in the second half of the twentieth century. When an industrial accident ended his dream of becoming a musician, Fuchs used the two-thousand-dollar compensation for his loss of three fingers to attend art school. Having had no art training and no painting experience, his art teacher taught him how to hold a pencil and draw. During his prodigious career, which included images for advertising, sports, books, posters, murals and fine art, Fuchs constantly changed and adapted his approach, deeply influencing the course of illustration. His style and inclusion of unusual figures in unexpected poses led to commissioned portraits of presidents, politicians, and numerous athletes and entertainment figures.
