Adventures in Illustration with James Bennett
The crowd that braved the adventures in severe weather Tuesday night was rewarded with a sprawling and funny tour of Jim Bennett’s splendid career, in which he’s painted everyone from sports mega-stars to unknown Swiss chefs. Jim generously brought some tearsheets that were quickly snapped up, and also displayed some original oil illustrations and framed prints, each one showing his admirable mastery of action, humor and lighting. Jim, many thanks for a great evening! Thanks to everyone who attended!
James Bennett’s illustrations run the gamut from art for The New York Times, Forbes, Time, Sports Illustrated and Mad to RCA Records, Paramount Pictures, and Milton Bradley. He’s illustrated picture books written by Carl Reiner and Jerry Seinfeld, and was awarded the Hamilton King Award and the Stevan Dohanos Award from the Society of Illustrators in New York.
