Dick Locher R.I.P.

My friend Patrick Owsley alerted me that Dick Locher, one of our very favorite artists, passed away at 88!  Dick and I had a long chat about his Ronald McDonald painting series from 1970, after I picked one up.  Kroc hired him, after trying to get Norman Rockwell.  Locher exceeded expectations, just as he did with Dick Tracy!  I look at his Ronald painting every day.  Rest in peace.  #dicklocher #chicagotribune #naperville #dicktracy #ronaldmcdonald #raykroc
