Watching Pete Beard’s Wonderful (and informative!) videos. December 30, 2020 by Jeff Baker.

One of the good things that happened in 2020 is I stumbled across the videos of artist Pete Beard. I’m gathering he’s British and an illustrator himself, and he posts videos about the history of such subjects as Windsor McCay and a history of French illustration. Maybe his grandest achievement is a series of biographical videos “Unsung Heroes of Illustration.” In these, he devotes each video to the histories of three sometimes more neglected of forgotten illustrators. Coupled with illustration and perfectly chosen background music, the videos are of PBS quality. I recommend them highly! There are fifty so far and more on the way! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKKWGERRrnE&t=629s
