Once upon a time, you could make a good living as a cartoonist. There were many newspapers and magazines, and they needed people to not only draw cartoons, but do all the unglamorous production work involved in printing a paper.
If you look up the Walter Foster art books, you will see a lot of painting books focused on illustrating fruit or scenery, or the ocean, decrepit barns, cute doggies, or human heads. All that is fine, but there was also a whole other set of books you don’t see so often, and it’s the cartooning and illustration of women, often in suggestive poses. This is one of those books!
