As you can probably guess, I spend some (more than I should) time surfing the net. Doesn't that sound high tech? I have many, many files on my computer full of things I like - pictures of quilts, vintage pictures, old advertising - most of it is vintage. During the searching I have discovered art by illustrators that capitivates me. Thought I would feature some of them from time to time.
The first is Nell Brinkley - 1886-1944 - who was referred to as the "Queen of Comics". Her drawings are just beautiful.
I have always wished I could draw - but alas it never happened. If you would like to read more about Nell, I have a link http://cartoons.osu.edu/NellBrinkley/index.php that should be a good place to start. You can also google her and look through images. There will be hundreds of wonderful illustrations to see. (Click to enlarge)
