Driving down Highway 1, I couldn’t help but think of Eyvind Earle. Known mostly for his work on Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty,” a treasure in itself, his work has a stunning way of portraying mood and space.
I currently have the first image of this post set as my desktop. During our drive, I can’t tell you how many times we looked at each other and said, “It feels like we’re driving through the image on your computer.” As a huge fan of his work, I feel like he was able to capture the full beauty and drama of this area—not an easy task.
The man was also a machine. “The Complete Christmas Card Art of Eyvind Earle” is a beautiful (and massive) book that features over 800 designs he created during the 57-year period between 1938 and 1995. It will definitely be my next purchase, as soon as I don’t need a separate suitcase to carry it around with.
