Bob Kuhn
(1920 – 2007)

bob kuhn is an extraordinary man & my great uncle. he is a well known painter/illustrator. he graduated from pratt & then worked as an illustrator until 1970 when he became a gallery artist. he didn't catch fame until he was around 60 (grinder). he illustrated a alot of encyclopedias. i have one & scanned in a page. i saw in the back he wrote a little something to his friend. i just got excited & scanned it in. this edition was later given to my mom. then my mom gave me a couple when i went home for holiday this year. he would make the shirts for our summer family reunions @ crescent beach, canada growing up. i dug up an old photo of me wearing it. sorry to nerd out just thought it was interesting to share & since we are knee deep on the illustration tip it seemed real relevant. i hope this inspires you...
