Know who this is? When? Where? What? Why it matters? 
There has never been a proper textbook on the history of illustration. It’s important, not just for training students but for representing the field and its legacy to the world.
In order to help get a textbook going, I have written a SURVEY to help determine the content, scope, format, and tone of a potential textbook. Whitney Sherman, an instructor at the Maryland Institute College of Art, co-authored the SURVEY, and it was checked over by a range of qualified people. We don’t have plans to write one ourselves - we just see the need for information for whoever does. The  New York Society of Illustrators is sponsoring this SURVEY.
Now it’s YOUR turn - have your say, as a teacher, student, collector, or scholar:
SURVEY
Oh, and it’s Arthur William Brown, circa 1945, New York, unidentified model, and it’s important because Brown was one of the biggest promoters of illustration in his day and a big influence on the evolution of sexualized beauty standards, for better and worse. Original on file at Society of Illustrators.

I am offering a free download of the entire 132-page Public Domain 2 artbook.  It’s about 115 megs, nicely high res, and looks great imported onto my iphone and ipad.  It represents about a decade of sketches and random art.
If you like it, please pick up a copy of the signed and numbered ltd ed print book!  Khepri’s selling the remaining stock, both editions, and its the only place you can pick it up.  There will be no further editions of the book beyond this.  Also be sure to check out the mini-screenprints.
Enjoy!
