Two big features in this issue: Pulp artist Earle Bergey and charcoal portraitist William Oberhardt.
The new issue of Illustration Magazine has a 23 page article with dozens of examples of Oberhardt's portraits, both in charcoal and oil, together with many notes about his process, including extended excerpts from several articles by Oberhardt himself.
He engaged his subjects in a spirited conversation. He wanted to make sure that the sitter had a delightful experience, and he tried to bring out their best in the conversation.
There's also a very detailed article on pulp illustrator Earle Bergey.
