ROBERT HUNT SUPERSTAR!

Matthew 7:7 "Ask and ye shall recieve..."

 Art Director Shelley Camhi at Scholastic magazine contacted me to do a piece for them. The story was about the U.S. eavesdropping/spying on its allies. The illustration was to feature Uncle Sam listening through a wall as Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany, orders a pizza on her cell phone. Scholastic provided me with a photo of Merkel but Uncle Sam was another matter. I put out a call to some friends hoping one of them would be kind enough to lend me their face for the illustration. Robert Hunt went above and beyond in providing me with a great set of images that he photographed of himself in his studio. All he asked was that I send him a sketch. He even donned a hat similar in style to the one Uncle Sam wears. I was the friend in need but Robert's the friend indeed and in deed. I can't thank him enough for taking the time to do this for me. His pictures were perfect for the task at hand. Thanks again, Robert. Now it's official. The world now knows that not only are you a great painter and illustrator but a great guy all around. But many of you already knew that.
