This morning brings us the final segment of a five-post series in Today’s Inspiration, based around a 1988 Paperback Parade interview with noted American illustrator Mitchell Hooks. Over the course of these posts we hear about Hooks’ early days painting paperback covers, his favorite painting medium and his work with models, his fronts for a series of Ross Macdonald softcover reprints, some thoughts on his fellow artists, and much more. Blogger Leif Peng has peppered in plenty of Hooks’ art, so readers get a better sense of what the man accomplished over his three-decades-long career.
