An Earl Oliver Hurst Monday

If he wasn't in animation, he sure could have been--but then we'd likely be out all those fantastic covers and illustrations.
Posted here to porvide a little charm and inspiration for what's sure to be a busy week for wielders of Blackwings and styluses.

I love that Collier's cover - so free and festive. I'm not sure I'd ever heard of the artist!

A visit with Stuart Ng introduced me to Earl Oliver Hurst so I bought the "Art of" book and it's a dandy.

There is actually a lot of his original magazine art for sale online and most of it is quite affordable. (My wife and I are kicking ourselves for not getting one he did for Harper's Bazaar that Stuart had when where there..)

Ya know... I'm looking at that Collier's Cover... and I can't figure out where the soldier's legs are. Is that his knee behind the orange square? If it is, his right thighbone must be broken in the middle. Something has gone wrong. The anatomy doesn't make sense.
