Charley Harper: Return to Innocence

24 Feb

I am dreaming of Charley Harper again. Honestly, I didn’t know of him till I started looking for monkey and racoon illustrations for a couple of pieces I am working on. Nothing I say will do justice to his art – the bright palette, simplicity of line, and especially, the freshness inspires me to return to nature and innocence – traits that I struggle to find in the grown-up world

The Shadow Dancers (below) is my absolute favorite

Charley Harper. Shadow Dancers.

    I share in your enthusiasm for Charley Harper’s art work. He was just amazing. Whenever I need a lift, I look through his illustrations online.
