Armstrong Favorites

Rolf Armstrong is a favorite golden age magazine artist, and my overall favorites of his work are his College Humor covers. The portraits of women are certainly vintage, but the colors, compositions and moods are timeless.

The delicate tracery of the veil in the first one here, with the delicate shadow is subtly amazing considering the pastel medium he's using.

Above and below, reworking the cover for a calendar.
