horst janssen

i picked up an art book at a garage sale - it is a monograph on the german artist horst janssen.
Photobucket
ever hear of him? neither had i, but i am loving his way with a colored pencil.
fading rose if you're out there today, i think you will be moved by him too.
Photobucket
from the book;
"by 1980, janssen himself inventoried over 10.000 drawings created by him during some thirty years."
Photobucket
ten thousand drawings?
sigh.
