Meet the Author

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.

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.

More than 85 years ago, Walter Foster—a well-known artist, instructor, and collector—began producing art instruction books from his home in Laguna Beach, CA. He originally wrote, illustrated, printed, bound, packaged, shipped, and distributed them himself. Although Walter passed away in 1981 at the age of 90, his legacy continues in a growing product line
