If you know me or this blog you will know I love good comic strip, cartoon, animation and illustrative art work.
I just received a copy of "Hal Foster, Prince of Illustrators-Father of the Adventure Strip" and just thumbing though it I have already fallen in love with it.
In his youth in Canada he spent a lot of time out-of-doors and much of his early work centers around that.
While much of his later work reflects on his knowledge and love of the natural world and shows up in Prince Valiant and other works.
You can tell by his drawings of canoes that he spent lots of time in one.
Check out the book if you can.
