The Heir to Dorne's Throne: Jon Whitcomb

Monday, October 16, 2006


What's this? How could Albert Dorne's American-as-apple-pie mom in the kitchen lose her crown to Jon Whitcomb's Hollywood-starlet-in-the-boudoir? Why would I call Whitcomb the "heir to Dorne's throne? In terms of style and subject matter, you wouldn't typically place Jon Whitcomb next to Albert Dorne - but listen; these two illustrators had more in common than you'd notice at first glance. This week we'll look at how Jon Whitcomb supplanted Albert Dorne as the most popular illustrator in America.
