Few artists have ventured into as many different areas in art making as illustrator Harry J. Schaare. In addition to his graphic works he has been a regular illustrator for such magazines as Readers Digest and Aviation Week and a frequent designer of book covers, having worked for practically every major paperback publisher in New York. He even painted the maquette for a “Star Wars” bedspread.
Born in Jamaica, NY, in May 1922, he attended New York University School of Architecture, and graduated from Pratt Institute in 1947. He served as pilot in the Air Corp during WWII and has since traveled around the world as artist for the U.S. Air Force. Over twenty five of his artworks are in the United States Air Force art collection.
