Charley Harper

Illustrator Charley Harper was best known for his unique depiction of nature in art, conservation work and years of "minimal realism" as he called it.  Prolific during the 1950's, 60's and 70's he created and continued until his death in 2007, highly stylized wildlife prints, posters and book illustrations.  It was incredibly hard for us to choose examples of his work for this post as they are all so iconic, quirky and completely classic. So much so that fabric company Maharam are releasing some of his images for their digital prints. The American Modernist put it best "I don't try to put everything in, I try to leave everything out".  More pics after the break.
