Lou Fine was one of the more influential artists of the Golden Age, especially considering his relatively short lived career before moving on to newspaper strips and commercial art. His work exuded a realism and grace that were rare in his time, and became an inspiration to many masters who followed, including from the school of art I trained in. His name was a household word at Continuity of the late ’70s. His exquisite compositions and sensitive drawing were a delight to study and become lost in. Aside from our short lived careers in comics, Fine and I also shared a slight polio affliction. Newest addition to Portraits of the Creators Sketchbook.
