Vintage Illustrations: Edwin Georgi

[Edwin Georgi's first version illustration for the Saturday Evening Post]

Over the last couple of days, Today's Inspiration has been featuring illustrator Edwin Georgi. His work was prominently featured in The Saturday Evening Post and many other publications of the day because of his ability to create striking, vivid illustrations of women. He captured reflected light and shadow with amazing drama. Yesterday's story focussed on one particular illustration that the art director requested Georgi make racier.
