Charley Harper's Studio

I just came across these fantastic images of illustrator Charley Harper in his Cincinnati home/studio. They were taken by designer, printmaker and journalist Harmen Liemburg when he visited Harper in 2006.

Harper's illustration style was clean and minimal. His work can easily be recognised by the simplistic forms of nature and wildlife, so I was absolutely shocked when I saw how packed and untidy his studio was!

I love the little details in these images that give a little glimpse into his life at 84 - the electric typewriter on the desk even though this was only 3 years ago, the dried up leaves taped onto the wall for reference and most of all his cat nestled amongst the piles of his work.
