Lee Conrey

For over 20 years between the 1920's through 1940's Lee Conrey contributed thousands of black and white illustrations to a Sunday newspaper supplement called "The American Weekly". His mastery of line art stands with the best of the last hundred years like Charles Dana Gibson, Alex Raymond, and Frank Frazetta.

A master draughtsman he managed to give his work appeal, and an animated quality. The characters he drew each had their own unique personalities and never relied on stock expressions.

Conrey could expertly handle all manner of subject matter from humor to horror to romance. He was able modify his art to fit the needs of the story while still maintaining a strong appealing style.
