An airbrush artist famous for his erotic pin-up girls. All through the 30s he created elaborate airbrush centerfolds for Esquire Magazine. His highly idealized (read: va-va-voom, in a way that real girls could never pull off by dint of being restricted to the laws of physics) girls - called Vargas Girls, as he signed all his work with Vargas, the S to indicate possession - were immensely popular with servicemen in particular. Hugh Hefner hired him on at Playboy in the 70s, though by that time his prime creative period was long behind him.
