Artist For Freedom! I'd never heard of Arthur Szyk before I came across him while doing random Google searches today. I really like his artwork! We had a post awhile back with poster art addressing the "current situation. I wonder what Mr. Szyk would've made of the times we live in?

If you typed in "szyk", you were truly searching randomly.

My father's a pretty gifted cartoonist, and Szyk is one of the artists that influenced him the most. Looking at some of the caricatures in your second link, I see a lot of little details that Dad..uh..."borrowed" from Szyk.

Tsk Tsk that's just bad form black8 :)

His art is indeed interesting. I liked the New York one.

Bad Form...? I was actually looking for Bettie Page! (rowr!) those WW2 cartoons were awesome!

As a kid, I had the book of Andersen's Fairy Tales illustrated by Szyk. Very disturbing.

I like him, and I haven't even looked at his stuff.
