    When I heard Mr. Hollingsworth had past...I was terribly sadden that a real comic, artist, teacher, inspiration to young
    minds had been silenced. He made us all laugh when anyone of us in class expressed..."Oh God"...he responded by..." Yes, my child, you called?"
    His skinny stick figures he painted on top of colored tissue paper, to me, was his signature. He taught us to think outside the box. I am so fortunate to have studied with him at A&D. He did make an impression on me, and when I think of him he brings a big smile to my face and heart.

    I had the honor of having such an artist as my teacher at A&D.

    I did not know he died. We have lost a great artist.

    Happy New Year
    Mr Hollingsworth

    I have always admired your work.
    Ever since homeroom class.
    Please e-mail me.
    I'm in the process of designing a web site for my father who is also a fine artist.
    Talk to later.

    Oh my God...I remember this when Al was working on it.
    I was there, so was a girl named Fran, and another named Robin, I don't remember their maiden names at the time.
    In all these years, I have not seen any of Al Hollingsworth works since moving to Orlando Fla 20something years ago. It's spooky how much even my own work as been influenced by Al's talent. I just heard he has passed away a few months ago...I morn him, my teacher, my mentor, and most all....my friend. May he be in heaven painting every beautiful sunrise for all to see. Some day we shall paint together again...and I may still learn a thing or two.
