In Memory of Arnold Friberg

A little over a week ago, on July 1st, Arnold Friberg, one of my art-heroes and oldest inspirations passed away. I grew up admiring and poring over the illustrations he did for the Book of Mormon, and later discovered his other work. He is most famous for 'Prayer at Valley Forge,' artwork for 'The Ten Commandments,' and his works for the Canadian Mounties.
Here are two works that I have prints of for my walls.

For more on him, I recommend Greg Newbold's blog. James Gurney is where I found out the news, and should be visited as well.

Oof, you've been busy since you've gotten back. That's good to see.
