Harry Bush, a mid-century classic
The artists here, both classic and contemporary, are famous for their fully rendered and very commercially successful work. Seeing their preliminary drawings and exploratory sketches, however, can be an experience all its own. In a sketch you can often see the artist's mind at work -- it is as if you are privy to the birth of the creative process.
Above: Classic mid-century artist Harry Bush came to fame in Bob Mizer's Physique Pictorial magazine. Harry's finished products were highly modeled pencil drawings that looked almost as if they were were rendered in air brush. Harry also knocked off what he called "scribbles." Harry's scribbles were also some of the more humorous and delightful of his drawings.
