Artist of the Day- Earl Thollander (click on image to see more)

For years we have enjoyed The Thousand Recipe Chinese Cookbook by Gloria Bley Miller. Great recipes, easy to do…and with great illustrations…by Earl Thollander. It turns out he was a very productive illustrator which also gave him time to paint, make prints…be a real artist with many one man and group shows. Our cookbook is grease stained with love…all the more so for Earl Thollander.

During his career, Earl illustrated over 62 children’s, cooking and travel books. He produced at least 60 one-man showings and participated in countless group and invitational shows. This tireless productivity and focus are a tribute to his insatiable curiosity, love of learning, life and the recording of it through his art. (from his home page)
