This past December, the creative community lost a very wonderful person as well as a one of the most talented illustrators of our time; Lowell Hess.
I was privileged to interview Lowell (twice) and meet him in person at his residence along with his wife Nancy. They treated me like family and opened their home up to me while allowing me to peruse through some absolutely amazing art pieces from throughout Lowell’s incredible career. After the memory of such a great guest during one of my earlier interviews (see guest list) was weighing heavy on my mind, I suddenly recalled a shorter encore interview (follow up) that I conducted with Lowell not too long after the original. It was quite casual in nature and I asked him to explain a bit more about his process regarding his gouache illustrations.
In typical Hess fashion, he hesitated not for a second and described to me in detail about working with gouache, how he preferred to work at a smaller scale and how to freshen up a soiled gouache illustration too. The more he shared with me, the more I realized what an amazing talent I was listening to! In a sense, he truly could do it all.
Well, as luck would have it, I located the disc with that encore interview and decided that I should share it with those who might be interested. I will refer to this as the Lowell Hess Encore Interview. So after blowing off the dust from the 6 year old disc, I present to you once again; Lowell Hess.
