Celebrating Illustration, Design, Cartoon and Comic Art of the Mid-20th Century

FAS Alumnus, Robert Heindel

Monday, March 12, 2012

I have a small stash of Famous Artists School magazines from the early '60s, which are the source of constant delight to me. Every time I flip through them some new gem of art and/or information reveals itself. This time it was the FAS Student Showcase page in the Autumn '63 issue, which featured the young Robert Heindel.

These examples from Famous Artists School magazine certainly are impressively professional. Heindel clearly had already accomplished much for a young illustrator of just twenty-four. But they barely hint at what was to come later in his career.

Just a few years later...

... and then in ensuing decades.

This week I'm going to share with you some pages from my Famous Artists School magazine collection that showcase students of the program. Some went on to become famous in their own right and, while some others did not, they are, in my opinion, still very worthy of our recognition for their skills and accomplishments.

* The Famous Artists School still exists to this day, albiet under new ownership. You can check out their website here.
