Hal Foster in John Hughes Country


Here's a nice article about a Skokie man trying to bring more attention to Hal Foster, who lived in Evanston, right across the north border of Chicago (and east of Skokie), for several years. The profile of the Nova Scotia-born artist in the article includes the information that Foster rode his bike (!) to attend the Art Institute, which considering the roads back then may have been a more impressive trip than Prince Valiant's jaunt to North America.

I can't imagine too many benign impulses healthier for appreciation of the art form than people urging various towns and cities to embrace their cartooning legacies.
