About the Author
Walter T. Foster was born in Woodland Park, Colorado, in 1891. In his younger years, he worked as a sign painter and a hog medicine salesman. He also performed in a singing and vaudeville act. Walter invented the first postage-stamp vending machine and drew political caricatures for several large newspapers. He's well known as an accomplished artist, art instructor, and art collector. In the 1920s, while running his own advertising agency and instructing young artists, Walter began writing self-help art instruction books. The books were first produced in his home in Laguna Beach, California, where he wrote, illustrated, and printed them himself. In the 1960s, as the product line grew, he moved the operation to a commercial facility, which allowed him to expand the company and achieve worldwide distribution. Walter passed away in 1981, but he is fondly remembered for his warmth, dedication, and unique instruction books.
Born in Oklahoma and raised in Boston, Fritz Willis studied art at Noble and Greenough Preparatory School and later attended Vesper-George Art Academy. During his career, Fritz won many awards for his artistic accomplishments. During the last years of his life, he taught art classes.
Born in 1910 on an Oklahoma farm, Earl MacPherson studied art at the Chouinard School of Art in Los Angeles after graduating high school. In 1941, MacPherson painted a pin-up illustration for the Shaw-Barton Calendar Company, which marked his entrance into the lucrative field of pin-up art. His book Pin Up Art: How to Draw and Paint Beautiful Girls was published by Walter Foster in 1954. MacPherson passed away in 1993. Claretta White studied theater and dancing, and thus enjoyed rendering the pageantry of dance, its colorful costumes, motion, and action on canvas.

I would suggest "Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life", or "Andrew Loomis", those are great for anyone at any level, and then come back to this book. But don't sell your self short, for this is good "reference" type material for the price, thought it seams to have become more pricey than it was the previous days..I have yet to use every bit of information from any drawing book in my library. Simply pick out information that you feel is important to what ever type of work your doing.
There is nothing in this book that tells you how to draw anything. I couldn't believe how little this book provided in the way of instruction. I skimmed through this book after I purchased it, and almost every page had examples of a complete work, with no step by step for anything.
Go ahead and look at the preview of the book, not one page gives detail direction for anything. One page may have a model in a bathing suit, and the page says, "and this is how you draw a model in a bathing suit" and its just the picture?!
I would suggest purchasing the Jack Hamm books. They are much older, but they are exactly what one would consider a step by step art instruction.
thanks to amazon for letting me return this book. its not worth the paper its printed on.
Overall I do like this book, because it does show the process of drawing or painting a pin up model. It is worth the money, but only if you are already actively drawing. Otherwise, don't buy it.
The book came well-packed and in good condition.
