About the Author:

Andrew Loomis was born in 1892. After studying art, he moved to Chicago where he eventually opened his own studio - working in editorial and advertising for most of the top clients of the time, including Kellog's, Coca Cola, Lucky Strike and many others.

He also became renowned as an art teacher and his instructional books on illustration and art are acclaimed classics in the field. He died in 1959.
