The Doggie Shop received a donation of several drawings by someone named Fancher. The outside of the carry case has Ollie Fancher Art. I can't find anything on this person other then an artist out of Tennessee by the name of Oliver Fancher. But, I can't find anything that shows his style. So I don't know if this is the same person. Does anyone here on geekfest know art by Ollie Fancher?

Apparently he was a graphic design teacher at MTSU.

The second artwork here is his:

James & Susan Fancher had a salt box style home (now 1882 Harvest House B&B) built via Eureka Improvement Company. The local Fancher family member historian, with genealogical interest is Paul. He gave me references from:

The Fancher Family by W. H. Fancher, 1947
WSP-James Polk Fancher, Green Forest, Arkansas, 1903
James Polk Fancher, Bible Record

Lunarmist I think you found him. The artwork on that website is right on what these drawings look like. Thank you very much.
