Today we wish our good friend George Ladas a very happy 80th birthday!
George and Fred were best friends through art school and beyond. In the picture above, George is in the middle, with Fred on the right and another friend Bruce on the left.
Best to you always, George!

Both artists have similar styles and I have reviewed book covers with Foster art thinking it may be Pfeiffer, and then located the Foster signature.
Thanks Scotty and the internet for setting this straight!

Rob had provided Pfeiffer photos, artwork, and extremely insightful and important commentary to this blog. His dream was to have a book on fred Pfeiffer's art published so he would not be forgotten.
This is a HUGE personal loss for us here at the Pfiles. Hopefully we had/have established part of Rob's dream about his cousin by posting Pfeiffer artwork on the web to illustarte his true genius and to ensure that he is not forgotten.
RIP Rob, and say hello to Fred for us.

Hi Judy. Thanks for your recent comment on the blog. It would be fantastic if you could send a nice pic of your original art so we can post it here. Look forward to hearing from you. Courtney Rogers Glendale, AZ email@example.com

Purple Pfeiffer again on a very early piece. Fun cover. This is really a good one in that in his early career here he was showing some chops. This cover is interesting to me in the way the subjects are posed and what Fred left out and One Foot On The Floor!

Hi Dean- Thanks for your great comments of Pfeiffer's Doc Savage work. I have always loved his art on Doc and have been mystified why other Doc fans hated it so much. I think my interest in Pfeiffer has made other friends and Doc fans take a second look and re-consider their feelings. Feel free to email at any time firstname.lastname@example.org Courtney Rogers Glendale, AZ

Here is the Society of Illustrators 16th annual hardcover book showcasing the annual national exhibition from Februay 14 through April 19th 1974 in NYC.
As shown above, Fred had 3 pieces in the exhibition. Too bad the pictures were not in color as they deserve to be.
Thanks to Stan Shaw who let me know that Pfeiffer appeared in Illustrators 15, 16 and 19.
Shown is Pfeiffer's address at the time.

This Bantam cover features a big and bold Pfeiffer signature.
I always thought that the back illustration did not resemble Pfeiffer's work. Then one day I found a previous printing of this book and that illustration was the front cover of the book!
So the back cover shown here is not a Pfeiffer, as suspected!
This is the first instance that I am aware of where the front cover of a book was featured on the back cover of a subsequent printing.
