Fred Pfeiffer: July 14, 1940 - January 4, 1996


It was 15 years ago today that a very talented and remarkable artist and illustrator passed away by his own hand. Not much is known regarding the circumstances of this act, except that he had moved back to his parents home in Overland Park, KS from Los Angeles in order to regroup and try to resurrect his art career. In his own words, Fred had said he was "still being punished by the gods for leaving N.Y.C."

We at The Pfeiffer Pfiles are determined to keep the art and memory alive of Fred Pfeiffer. His life is celebrated by presenting to the public a collection of his wonderful illustration art. We hope that this display of his work would have made him proud.

Thanks, Courtney for such an eloquent way of remembering Fred Pfeiffer on this sad anniversary of his passing. How I wish Fred was still with us. We are lucky to have his art.
