This weekend while CHRISTmas shopping with a friend in Chelsea I stumbled across the work of Walter Erhard. Above is one of many fine examples of Erhard’s illustration work from the 1950’s and 60s. There doesn’t seem to be much information about him online, but according to designsponge, Erhard was also a textile designer. Seems only fitting, due to Erhard’s beautiful use of color and his unique illustration style. This year instead of designing my own cards, I’m going to buy a bunch of these, and scan them! If any of you out in the digital world know any more about Erhard, let me know. I’d love to know more about him and see more of his illustration/textile work. Also – if you’d like a Holiday Card, send me your address and I’ll mail you one! It gives me such joy sending out a huge batch of Christmas cards for the holidays. And until your card arrives, enjoy more work from Walter Erhard.
