University of British Columbia Campus by James Hill, another grand Maclean’s magazine cover image from the 1950s. Published March 31, 1956, it depicts the hustle and bustle of the end of the school year, but could just as easily be applied to the end of the fall semester. This blog post (and comment stream) is a testament to his career, and an impressive body of his illustrations can be seen in this photoset.
James Hill shares an honour with Franklin Arbuckle, the previous Maclean’s illustrator that I featured here; both were recipients of CAPIC lifetime achievement awards. Because I can’t seem to find mention of these awards on the CAPIC website (faux pas!), I’m going to include the first 10 recipients of the CAPIC lifetime achievement awards below, sourced here:

1986 - Franklin Arbuckle1987 - Clarence Gagnon1988 - Oscar Cahén1989 - James Hill & C.W. Jefferys (recipient of the Ivor Sharp Award for Posthumous Achievement) Interesting side note: Ivor Sharp was the founder of CAPIC and happened to take this rather famous photo of John & Yoko; Ivor died of a stroke in 1989. 1990 - Will Davies1991 - Don Anderson1992 - Tom Bjarnason1993 - Lewis Parker1994 - Ken Dallison1995 - Gerald Lazare

I’ve linked to 4 of the recipients above who have pages on wikipedia currently; the others can be found on the Index of Canadian Illustrators, an incredible resource administrated by friend and art compadre Jaleen Grove.
I’m also pleased see that James Hill’s daughter Amanda Hill has a Vancouver connection to the art world. She studied at Basic Inquiry right here in Vancouver in 1997, and then headed to Toronto where she has since exhibited her paintings over the last decade, winning numerous awards along the way. The family legacy continues.
