WESTPORT, Conn. -- Randall Enos, a world-famous editorial illustrator, will be the Y's Men of Westport and Weston's featured speaker at its weekly meeting, on Thursday, April 7.
Enos, whose work has been seen for the last 60 years in countless publications around the world, will discuss the evolution of his craft and career, and show samples of his work.
After studying at the Boston Museum School of Fine Arts, Enos honed his craft under legends of the art world at Famous Artists School in Westport for eight years. He began accepting freelance assignments that have become the majority of his work since he left Famous Artists. Enos has sold editorial illustrations to many publications and organizations, including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Playboy, Forbes, Reader's Digest, New York Magazine and NBC.
Enos also became a syndicated political cartoonist and caricaturist. He has done animation and film titles for Pablo Ferro Films in New York, corporate films for Olivetti, Life magazine, Singer Corporation, and many others, and he has illustrated children's and adult books.
He drew on New Bedford, Massachusetts, a once-important whaling city and his birthplace, in completing an elegant coffee table book chronicling the true story of Moby Dick.
Y's Men of Westport and Weston is an organization of retired and semi-retired men with a continued interest in activity, fellowship, learning and community service. Those interested in attending Enos' presentation or learning more about the Y's Men should contact John Brandt at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also visit the group's website.
The meeting will begin at 9:45 a.m., at the Saugatuck Congregational Church, 245 Post Rd. East, in Westport.
