A website dedicated to the late great Syd Hoff now has a 19 panel online slide show, “Syd Hoff…the Man, the Magic & the Mystery.” Mr.Hoff’s niece, who created the website, writes to Ink Spill that “the exhibit includes a variety of original images, text panels and family photos…the exhibit has also been created as a traveling exhibit for libraries, museums and cultural centers. The inaugural showing will be held in S. CA at the Newport Beach Library in early fall.”
Syd Hoff’s first drawing (to the left) appeared in the August 1, 1931 issue of The New Yorker. He went on to contribute 571 more, with his last in January 27, 1975. In the meantime he found great success as a children’s book author. Mr. Hoff passed away in May of 1994. He was 92.
