Mel Hunter (1927-2004)

He entered college a year early.  After college, he held a variety of jobs, from pumping gas to writing copy for an insurance firm and selling insurance on a Fair circuit.  Eventually he traveled to the West Coast in search of employment.
 
In 1950, Mel made up his mind to pursue a career in art and decided to teach himself illustration skills, which he did after work, on weekends and all other spare time, working at his kitchen table.  (showing 500 of 8308 characters).
