Jim Flora {inspiration friday}

I came across Jim Flora's work while looking for inspiration for a December Nights illustration {see Happy Holiday's post.} He was most know for the Jazz album covers he did in the 1940's and 50's along with his children's book and magazine illustration. On his website, though, you discover the fine art side to him. The prints and note cards available for sale made me drool. He has been gone for over a decade, but his art still speaks to me now. It says "hey there, I'm still amazing!" Enjoy!
