This mini masterpiece comes to us courtesy of one of America’s premiere illustrators, C.F. Payne. This mixed media illustration was created on a 8.75x12.25” piece of illustration board, and the art itself measures 5.5x5.75”. This is a fantastic piece in Payne’s unmistakeable style, and would be a delight to add to your illustration collection. Signed “C.F.” in the lower left corner.
C.F. Payne is widely respected for his craft whose artwork has graced the covers of Time Magazine, Reader’s Digest, Sports Illustrated, The New York Times Book Review and Sunday Magazine, MAD Magazine, der Spiegel, U.S. News and World Report, The Atlantic Monthly, Texas Monthly, Boys’ Life and more. He has been commissioned to paint countless politicians, authors and entertainers. He has illustrated many children’s books in recent years, including those by celebrity authors John Lithgow and Steve Martin. Despite his proliferation, Payne also finds time to be the Director of MFA Illustration Program at the University of Hartford in Connecticut training young minds and hands to carry on the tradition of excellence in illustration.
