March-April 2010, I intend to draw a different contemporary artist every day.

Today’s portrait is of L. Hunter Roeback, known as Orion60 on flickr, and his nephew Sam. I love the way Hunter artfully illustrates his wide-ranging, inventive, and intelligent wit. Subjects range from tales of the opossum living in his mailbox to ‘This day in history’. I always know I’m going to get a smile when I look at his work, not just because his pieces are funny but because my brain is so happy to get tweaked.

You can see Hunter’s artwork on his flickr imagestream:
