Bernie Fuchs has passed away after a struggle with cancer. As an illustrator who grew up with Fuchs work all round me in its many permutations, I feel the loss of his artistic voice. He was a giant of his generation who was also a gentleman of modest presence. He was an artist who drove himself to excel and to invent and reinvent his style, point of view, and sustain an extraordinary level of taste and quality in every illustration and painting that he produced. We are lucky that, through Leif Peng's blog, we can see the highlights of this gentleman genius' career. I encourage you to visit www.todaysinspiration.blogspot.com as a tribute and a source of inspiration. He will be much missed and well remembered for what he contributed to our world.
