Charley Harper

Charley Harper was a legend of American illustration. In a painting style he called "minimal realism", he managed to distill the subject matter into so few elements that it became essentially geometric, and yet somehow was still rich with character. Of this, he famously said:

"I don't count the feathers, I just count the wings."

I recently discovered the work of Charley Harper
and right now he's my hero.
It's just a shame that there won't be any more from him.

  1. Lovely illustrations - I like the simplistic quality.
