Palm Springs Life Magazine January 1997
ON THE COVER — Famed charcoal artist Volpe created many beautiful portraits of the desert’s famous residents and visitors, including this one of the venerable Bob Hope. Los Angeles illustrator Jeff Wack was asked to help contemporize Volpe’s work for the January cover, an homage we’re sure Volpe would stamp with his approval.
