Charlie Harper got super famous post death. Ain't it always the same deal.... Most people recognize his work from a super famous coffee table book by Todd Oldham "An Illustrated Life"
For those lucky enough to be in San Francisco, an exhibition of original Harper drawings and paintings recently opened at Altman Siegel Gallery, showing until October 31st. The works on show, many small in scale, are original illustrations he produced for publications including Golden Book of Biology (1961), and The Animal Kingdom (1968), and his lifestyle illustrations for the Ford Times Magazine.
i bow my head Mr Harper. though not around anymore, you immensely inspire me still.
