A Certain Howard Pyle Fan

This blog is all about Howard Pyle. But the other important artist in my life - really, the most important artist and the most important man in my life - has been and forever will be my father, John Schoenherr. He was a Pyle fan since childhood and he introduced me to Pyle's work when I was a boy.

I've written something about him here.

I check your Pyle Blog daily, and thank you for it. I am very sorry to learn of the loss of your father. I had the opportunity to see a few of his originals at the Boston Worldcon a few years back, and was just blown away by his work. I hope a retrospective can be mounted, and would love to see a book collecting many of his drawings and paintings.

Thanks, Bob - I'd love to see those things, too!
