Today I am paying tribute to the great artist and fashion illustrator George Stavrinos. His work has been on my mind lately. He was at RISD just before my time. In my early days as an illustrator I would wait for the NY Times every Sunday to see his amazing full page artwork for Bergdorf Goodman. He brought back a drawing style from the golden age of illustration and a new narrative into fashion illustration. The look was exactly right for the mood of the late 1970′s return to glamour. He left us too young but his beautiful work remains.
