Meet this Illustrator: Mead Schaeffer

I'm a big fan of the golden age of American illustration, these artists who kept the integrity of the painting and who applied various design techniques - many created by themselves - stylizing lights, maximizing contrasts, cutting traces and leaving much to the interpretation of those are looking the image. They are artists of extreme elegance and amazing skill. 

For you who want to know more artists from the Norman Rockwell´s generation, Mead Schaeffer is one of the great illustrators to study. 

Pay particular attention to the illustration of The Count of Monte Cristo (the last on) and look how his clothes blend with shadow.
