Billy DeVorss - “A Real Leg Show” 1942 - Love the pastel colors on this illustration by DeVorss. This illustration was done for Brown & Bigelow Calendar Company. Also interesting to note that DeVorss was never under contract with any single calendar company which allowed him to work for virtually all of the golden age of Illustration calendar firms, his work was very much in demand.

Al Buell original gouache and ink Al Buell which was originally painted in 1957 for the Brown & Bigelow Calendar Company but appeared in the “Al Buell’s Beauties” Calendar in September 1961. The painting was gouache and ink and a similar style to Buell’s other works. The detail on his side sketches in this illustration are wonderful including earrings and tints that match the dress of his model in the illustration.
