Against All Odds: An Inspirational Story About the Amazing Illustrator Bernie Fuchs

 

Video Details

Sponsored by: The Creative Talent Network

A Bernie Fuchs presentation by Illustration Art afficianado David Apatoff as he shares about how a young artist from nowhere was able to make his way to the top of the illustration field, despite all the disadvantages (poor, fatherless, lost 3 fingers from his drawing hand in an industrial accident, no business contacts and almost no art school). David will pull back the curtain on the volatility of the illustration market back then, and how everyone said the best years of illustration were through. But through it all a fresh perspective and energy turned everything around, and made Bernie Fuchs rich and successful.

The real lion's share of the presentation are the terrific pictures shown with an emphasis on how inventive Bernie Fuchs was with new materials and styles and approaches, and how influential (and imitated) he was.
