Best known for his work for the first Life magazine for which he contributed pen and ink cartoons and color covers, he supplied the same talents for American Girl, American Boy, Judge, Century, McClure's, Scribner's, Collier's, Puck, Success, the pulps, and several book assignments. His pen and ink work (and humor) stands with the best of the age.
