International Salute to Flawless Form

Legendary commercial artist Bernie Fuchs died last month at the age of 76. His iconic artwork from the 1950s, '60s and '70s is instantly recognizable and spawned countless imitators and admirers.

I have always loved Fuchs' work but never knew much about him, so I particularly enjoyed an initial remembrance from the absolutely phenomenal illustration blog Today's Inspiration, as well as subsequent posts there about Fuchs (all of these images are from there, with the scan below courtesy Charlie Allen's Blog, another place I could fall in headlong).

As always, Steven Heller's obituary at The New York Times is also interesting and informative.
