Charley Harper

One of my absolute favorite illustrators, alongside Liselotte Watkins, Stina Wirsen, Tove Jansson, and Kerstin Thorvall is recently deceased Charley Harper. With his "minimal realism" mid 20's century silk screen style, Mr Harper somehow manages to lure even city girls like me into the world of animals and plants.

Well, at least for a short while.
