John Schoenherr (1935-2010)

My father, John Schoenherr, passed away tonight. He was a man of many talents and I can't say what he was best at, but he was, among countless other things, a great artist, a great husband to my mother for almost 50 years, and a great dad to my sister and me.

So sorry to hear about your loss. My condolences to you and your family.

On a much lighter note I really enjoy your blog on Howard Pyle. Thanx for all the good work!

My condolences to you and your family. I loved his illustrations for Jane Yolen's book, and that led me to discover all his other great work. A really inspiring artist, may he rest in eternal peace....!
