About me

Industry Education
Introduction A decade ago I found my first Bolles magazine on eBay, beginning my journey to learn more about this enigmatic and underrated artist. Bolles was among the first illustrators to specialize in what later became known as pinup art and he was an illustrator for countless products from suits to cigarettes. This blog is my personal testament to the man and his art.
