Pfeiffer Pfiles - One Year Anniversary

Wow! The Pfeiffer Pfiles have made it to a year old! The amazing thing is, we still have more material to publish.

Scotty Phillips put this wonderful site together. Very beautifully done and a perfect vehicle to showcase the magnificent artwork of Carl Frederick Pfeiffer, Jr.

I am really thankful that he came up with this brilliant idea. The goal of getting Fred's work out somewhere to be viewed has been readily accomplished. Seeing all this great art in one place is truly breathtaking, and one would hope that Mr. Pfeiffer would be very proud of himself (and maybe us, too!).

There have been several disappointments with this site. It was hoped that more people would be commenting on the art. Also, it was hoped more Pfeiffer art (original paintings and sketches, book covers, movie posters, record album covers, etc) would be found through other people and added to whatever we had. Even the questions and pictures of  "do you think THIS is a Pfeiffer?" would be really fun, or comments like "Gee, I thought that was done by this artist" would be enjoyable.

Nevertheless, the comments and insights added by our other two commenters Rob Weilert and Stan Shaw have been wonderful and priceless.

The main goal of placing Fred Pfeiffer's art in a vehicle to be found and viewed by others and to make sure he is not one of those forgotten artists, has been resoundingly met and gone beyond that.

Here's to the Pfeiffer Pfiles: Year two!

I Think the biggest problem is getting the site out there. It's hard to find places to post a link to share it. There are hundreds of blogs on paperback book art and covers that have hundreds of followers and posters. The Pfiles are just hanging out on the web relying on searches for Fred's art and work to lead folks here. I predict by next year we will have a few more and that time spent being out there will help us grow. I know people come here and look cause the stats are from all over the world.

People hate the hoops to jump through to post. That slows down the process as well.

I have seen our pictures used elsewhere (which is why, I watermark them) on other blogs and in searches for Pfeiffer.

We got nothing to lose and everything to gain by having the site and we just have to wait and see.
