Pileup reader John Ballon recently reminded me of illustrator David Weidman. Weidman worked as an animation artist with Hannah-Barbara before opening up a framing store in Los Angeles. There, he attempted to sell some of his gorgeous screenprinted posters but it seemed most of his customers were more interested in his frames! Years later, his artwork has been compiled into a book entitled The Whimsical Work of David Weidman. One look at his art and you can see how it still resonates with today's artists and illustrators.
Check out this monstrous collection of Weidman's art on Flickr.
