Charles Harper: I am an important guy

7 Sep


Charles harper is an American (what what) artist who is best known for his book illustrations, and wild life prints. Dude pretty much makes living thee life of a duck look pretty classy. Charles was still making beautiful things at 83! I cant imagine I would even be wanting to get out of bed at 83. Thankfully Charles Harper is a classier gentleman than I:


And now I have found something new to prowl for.
There’s one on Ebay (look here) now starting bid-180.00. I am pretty doubtful of it being an original print. You know the deal. But I would love to ooze my eyes over these great illustrations so they will be peeled.

There is also a ton of signed posters up that are starting to make me conscious of my spending. I now have a Charley the great fund going on in a rather large salt shaker I picked up at an estate sale. I figure it will take me about 5 years to save up and purchase. But if you’ve gots the cream get that sugar:
Owl


Wingding

But if you would like something where you might not have to chop of your arm and eat that for a week:

It’s gorgeous and priced at a measly ten bucks.

Heres my last bit for those of you bored with words:

    THANKS! Your blog is really helpful. My charley harper fund is still going. I haven’t counted any of the money yet because I fear finding out the price will be too tempting and I will spend it on something I dont need. Trust that I will be in contact with you when that fund looks like it has gotten to where it needs to be. :D
