I was a teenager and aspiring artist in the days of Jon Whitcomb, Al Parker, Vargas and other illustrators of that time. I'm not sure I still have it but I collected their illustrations in a scrapbook and I'll have to look for it. A group of these artist developed The Famous Artists Group and sold lessons in large books where you would complete the assignment and mailed it in. You would receive a lengthy critique with onionskin layovers to demonstrate the ways you could improve. I do still have these books. Wonder if anyone would be interested in seeing them.
