Earlier this morning, I walked up to the building where I took my design classes at the University of Cincinnati to check out the last day of "Charley Harper: A Bird's Eye View".
It was "a retrospective view of Charley Harper's career. Many never before seen works will be on view, beginning with his childhood and tracing a path throughout his career, providing a unique insight into the development of the icon maker we know today."
I loved seeing his process... there were many mock-ups/sketches with the finished piece next to it. I also enjoyed seeing his earlier works including paintings, pencil sketches of his time in Europe during WWII, and work by his wife.
These originals for Golden Books series were amazing to see in person. And the spot illustrations were great..
This was a wonderful exhibit that I was fortunate to see... and happy to see it at my alma mater.
