The new issue of Illustration magazine has a feature on Herbert Morton Stoops (1888-1948). Stoops had a long career in adventure and military illustration.
He painted covers for Blue Book magazine for 13 years. The article was written by Colonel Charles Waterhouse, USMC, himself a notable painter of military history.
Illustration #32 also has articles on “Ed Balcourt, Artist and Artist Representative,” and “The Artists of Alfred Hitchcock and the Three Investigators” which looks at the covers for a series of mystery books.
As always with Illustration magazine, the articles are lavishly illustrated with fine color reproductions, and you can preview the entire issue online.
