Style Icons: Male »Charley Harper

Charley HarperI happen to work with a slew of young ladies from Ohio and one of the perk on top of their adorable midwestern accents, is that they introduced me to Cincinnati native artist Charley Harper who sadly died this year. In fact, he's so adored in his home state that December 8th is Charley Harper Day.

His bold, stylized illustrations of nature and wildlife are simple, whimsical and exquisite. Strangely, he's not widely known; Todd Oldham refers to him asa “great under sung artist” in a new book of the artist's work, the first publication to include a complete retrospective.
