Manliness, Art and Friberg

I haven’t time to write up a proper artist’s profile today since it’s my wedding anniversary, but I had to at least share the words of somebody else (the writers of the entertainingly-named The Art of Manliness blog) honoring the exceedingly manly yet positive and uplifting art of the recently-passed Arnold Friberg.

The Manly Art of Arnold Friberg.

I’ve loved Friberg’s work for my whole life, on so many levels. Naturally, I first encountered his work through his Book of Mormon illustrations, but his work stretches well beyond the bounds of purely religious subject matter and is well worth another look. It has a feel that reminds me a bit of the late, great Howard Pyle.
