This is a small (8x4) pencil drawing. The guy had talent beyond "just" being an illustrator.

Why can't I find more of his work? What am I doing wrong?

You can check him on wiki but that is about it. I got some info from an art college he attended for a year prior to going to NY.

I'll add to the wiki piece but there really is not much on him. I need to check ny newspapers for social doings but that is a long row to hoe.

He was very prolific contributing mainly to magazines though he illustrated a number of books. He didn't do "art" per se though he had two (I think) gallery shows.

His career lasted about a decade.

Most people would be afraid to even try.

I've been compiling a list of books he illustrated

I imagine if he had been a political illustrator like Thomas Nast his work would be more available.

I found pdf's of all (I think) of the books he illustrated. I am thinking of making a collection of his illustrations.

Or is Nash more of a cartoonist than an artistic illustrator.

Yes, I'm asking if you're an art snob.

Not a snob, I collect stuff that I like so I have Peter Max alongside Durer. I do like the Little Masters of Germany. That is arcane so is pretty snobbish I guess.

Here is a fave. Adam and Eve being ejected from Paradise to the accompaniment of a Hurdy Gurdy, the earliest graphic representation I am told. Seems like an odd juxtaposition, no?
