NEW BOOK FROM STERLING HUNDLEY
Award winning illustrator Sterling Hundley has come out with a collection of his art, Blue Collar / White Collar.
The book melds Hundley's commercial illustration, his gallery art, and his thoughts on working "between the demands of Blue Collar ethic and the ambitions of a White Collar aesthetic."
Readers may recall that I admire Hundley's talent, his enthusiasm for nurturing young artists, and his thoughtful efforts to adapt to the circumstances confronting a 21st century artist. Many illustrators talk about diversifying and selling "fine" art to gallery audiences, but Hundley is one who seems to have pulled it off. I was pleased to be asked to write the introduction for his book.
I recommend that you check it out.
