Barbara Bradley, 1927-2008

It is with great sadness that the illustration world mourns the passing of Barbara Bradley yesterday from a car accident. Barbara was a veteran of the Cooper Studios and the Merrill Company Publishers. She was recently featured in Illustration Magazine, and was still active as a beloved teacher at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.

Hi James,

Thank you for this tribute to Barbara. She was a great teacher, who gave much and expected much of us. It was an honor to be her student, and I mourn with the illustration community of her passing.

Just terrible news. She sounded like an excellent teacher, and a real sweet gal to boot.
