Noel Sickles Scans: A Parting Gift from Tak Murakami

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

* This week, a parting gift from Tak Murakami, a Chicago illustrator and fan of Today's Inspiration who passed away recently.  Thanks to Tak's friend Jason Millet for doing the scanning of these Noel Sickles tear sheets from Tak's reference files.   If you'd like to see some of Tak Murakami's own work, Jason put together a very nice tribute to Tak on my other blog, Storyboard Central.

  3. "the most rewarding dream in the world" is reminiscent of Hugo Pratt's Corte Maltese -- often depicted lazin' about in a sunny clime. Very beautiful stuff, Leif.

    thanks
