Artwork and Photos on this Website:
All the line-drawings of birds in this GBP website, such as the Greater Prairie-Chicken on the top of this page, are the artwork of Bob Hines (1912-1994). Hines was an extraordinary wildlife artist, but without formal training. He first used his artistic talents for the Ohio Division of Conservation and Natural Resources, starting in 1939, and then he joined the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in 1948 as their artist-illustrator in residence.
He was asked to draw the 1946-1947 Migratory Bird Hunting [Duck] Stamp; he illustrated myriad U.S. Fish and Wildlife publications, and he drew birds, mammals, reptiles, fish, and other wildlife that even today is available as free clip-art. His dedication to the "Duck Stamp" led to a formal selection process with judges, standards, and clear rules for the art contest, starting in the early 1950s. A biography on the life of Bob Hines has recently been published. It is highly recommended:
