I tried looking up who he was. The closest I got was a ceramics professor at Humboldt University. If anybody has any information on this guy, please let me know.
I love his artwork. He seems to draw in a Paul Coker-like style. That seemed to have been pretty popular style in the 1960s and 70s.
*Update: I have just received word that the artist in question is Louis B. Marak, a successful Hallmarks and studio artist. He is a cousin of the ceramics professor, who is named Louis B. Marak. Please thank Barton, Marak's stepson, for sharing this information. He also says that Mr. Marak is alive and still creating art. Tell him thanks from us.
This is my favorite. This is a good way to design more realistic human characters. I would see an animated if the characters were this appealing.
Until Next Time
