I heard Friday that David Lesh, an innovative illustrator for 30+ years, left us after a brief illness.
I knew Dave only slightly, but my encounters with him were always positive. He was a hero in the communication arts field for his tireless and personally costly battle to save the illustration industry from itself.
I always admired his work, with its simple but strong conceptual foundation and his inventive use of media. My very sincerest condolences go out to his other friends and family.
Here is the David Lesh web site. Enjoy his work as much as he obviously enjoyed making it.
