O.J. Simpson, as illustrated by Harold Henriksen June 20 2014

Earlier in the week Spikes High remembered the events of June 17th 1994 with the release of our "White Bronco" limited edition t-shirt and print, as well as the original ink painting that inspired the Tee/Print, by Berto Herrera. All of this OJ yacking reminded me of a brilliantly illustrated book I found months ago. Simply titled "O.J. Simpson", the 1974 children's reader was scribed by Paul J. Deegan, and illustrated by Harold Henriksen.
While I did not search long, information on Mr Henriksen was hard to come by. The bulk of his book illustration work seems to have come in a series on sports superstars (of which this volume is a part), most of which written by Mr Deegan. They also did a instructional baseball series on pitching and hitting. I am really looking forward to getting those in the studio. We will certainly be taking a look at some of these book as soon as we can find good images.
Spikes High will be sharing more about Harold Henriksen and his work in the future. Until then, lets check out some of these OJ Illustrations!
