I always loved the way many of the 'girlie' cartoonists ( can I say that ? ) of the 50's and 60's plied their craft . . Bill Wenzel, Stanley Rayon, Bill Ward to name just a few . . I think they were the standards to be measured up against . . I'm sure they influenced anybody and everybody who even thought about drawing a pretty girl . . I know I think of them when I try to draw pretty women !
Phil Interlandi was another and of course, in my opinion, Jack Cole . . the greatest of them all.
I'd met Phil Interlandi in Los Angeles in 1954 when he was appearing in Playboy with Jack Cole at the time.
