Lief Peng is one of the most knowledgeable illustration historians out there. If you’re in Toronto next Wednesday, please do yourself a huge favour and go see him speak: 

On October 26, from 7 to 9 pm, I’ll be in Toronto at The Nook giving a talk about Marvin Friedman and many other mid-century illustrators whom I’ve written about over the last six years. I’ll share stories and anecdotes—some from my research but also many from personal interviews I’ve conducted with many Canadian and American illustrators of the mid-20th century. I’ll be looking at changing styles and technology and how both have impacted the business of illustration over the last half century. Perhaps we can learn something from the lessons of the past… or perhaps we are doomed to repeat it. (via Marvin Friedman: “You had to do what you had to do to get the work.”)
