Featured: Eyvind Earle

Going back into the vaults on this one, but this is an artist you should know about. Eyvind Earle (1916-2000) is best known for his art direction work for Walt Disney (you’ll recognize his forest-scapes and background art in Sleeping Beauty next time you find yourself watching that movie), but he spent the great majority of his career as a full time solo artist/painter/silkscreener. I love his graphic style, and fantastic color/detail work in his trees (especially the trees) and natural scenery. The images here don’t do the originals justice. Not even close. So if you can see some of his work in person, jump at the chance.

Info on the artist is here. And his official site is here. Check out the serigraphs and oils in particular. Lots and lots of stuff to soak in, and you will be inspired.
