Who is this Illustrator? I have seen tons of their work and I love it, but cannot for the life of me figure out who it is! If you know, please let me know! Thanks

Hi Bill,

I am sorry to say that I can't answer your question. The illustration does not have a signature, and I don't know who illustrated it. The style looks similar to Van Kaufman, but I am certainly not an expert on that subject.

You might pose your question to Leif Peng, who is the most knowledgable guy about vintage illustration that I know. Leif has a blog at and he also has a great collection on flickr at

Good luck in your search!
