Man Hands

This pair of hands belongs to Sydney Smith, a very talented artist whose work can be seen here and here.

Below are a few of my favourite Sydney Smith illustrations.  I am in awe of the beauty that he is constantly creating from his sunny studio in the Roy Building.  Making it look easy.

The time I spent working at Beech Street Preschool allowed me to conduct an extensive survey of children’s literature and examine a ton of illustration styles. Mabel Murple, illustrated by Mr. Smith himself, had a strong hold on those young creative minds. They were constantly sketching their own version of Mabel and it was amazing to see first-hand how strongly and positively they were influenced by his drawings.
