More Drawings from Harry

I spent Thanksgiving with my family and was happy to see my father, Harry, had been drawing over the last few weeks since I had seen him last. I went out and bought him some  Faber Castell Pitt Artist pens of various points, including a brush point. I happen to use them myself and I think they’re the cat’s pissah. Or meow, if you prefer.

Here are some of his sketchbook drawings for the Autumn season.  His comments and musings are always funny and/or revealing.

  4. Hi Tom, you don’t know me, but my father was also an illustrator, and did many Gothics back in the 60s and 70s. I’ve been working on a blog in honor of my father’s work, and as I do this I out other illustrators in the field of paperback covers. I heard your dad’s name mentioned often when I was a child. My dad admired your father’s work.

    In any case, I saw this site for your dad, and just had to say, hello! I really enjoyed seeing your dad’s work.

    Remember the bottle of wine? Maggie? Avon, CT? Cardavon Press? Oscar Wilde book signing????? I would be elated to have contact with you. It has been so very, very long. I have saved all of your letter (1976-1978) and treasure the Portrait of Oscar Wilde you created, just for me.

    Nancy and Erica (who is now to be 34 on Halloween) and two grandsons, Brady and Julian (3 & 1).

    I would so love to hear from anyone who can tell me how to get in touch with Harry.
