Thomas Blackshear

Artist Thomas Blackshear II, the son of an air force captain, was born in Waco, Texas, and grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. "Drawing was all I ever liked to do," says Blackshear. "While all the other guys were playing baseball or basketball, I was in my house, drawing." Thomas Blackshear pursued an interest in art throughout high school, securing a scholarship to the Institute of Art in Chicago. After a year there, he transferred to the nearby Academy of Art on another scholarship. While finishing his college education, he was recruited by Hallmark Cards. Thomas Blackshear and his wife, Ami, now live in Colorado. A much-honored painter, Blackshear has received many awards, including the Society of Illustrators's coveted Gold Metal. His highly awarded work also appeared in the Society of Illustrators Annuals and Outstanding American Illustrators Today, Volume Two.

Awesome experience

I absolutely love this picture! I have always been a fan of Thomas Blackshear. I had a choice between this picture and one from Amazon and I chose this one because of the quality and depth this picture brings of our black culture. Price was substantially different from Amazon, but I believe was worth it. No issues with shipping or receiving; everything was right on time. I have already recommended this site to others.
