When Bill Ward passed away in 1998, he left behind a body of work that encompassed six decades and more than 10,000 pin-up cartoons. By mastering a medium called the Conte Crayon, Ward was able to render unparalleled detail and textures, including the exquisite sheen on his trademark black thigh-high stockings. His Barbie-proportioned glamour girls graced the pages of countless men’s and humor magazines where they shared the pages with photos of Bettie Page and pin-up cartoons by legendary Playboy Magazine artist Jack Cole.
