7 - 105 Artists Identified with 'PS' Over 60 Years

We're running a little late, folks! A funny thing happened on the way to pulling the trigger on this blogpost. In a period of three days (and right on deadline, of course), the number of persons identified as PS Magazine art contractors and their personnel grew from 33 to 55 to 105!

Combined searches by the New Millennium staff at PS, the Joe Kubert shop, and Yours Truly in research for three books, have now identified 105 individuals as having been involved with PS over 703 issues and 60 years in some aspect: creative art, technical art, incidental art, layout and design, and other pre-press production steps.

They are listed here in alphabetical order. There is no connection between their location on these blog pages and any adjacent art. All the art presented in this posting is from the early Will Eisner era of PS production. The Front Cover and Back Cover immediately below are from PS 26 (November 1954). The two-color (black-plus-blue) art in this posting is a selection of some of the incidental "scatter" art in PS 100 (March 1961). The two four-color grabs at the end of this blog are from the Continuity in PS 115 (June 1962)

If you wish a more definitive chronological fix regarding a specific individual, you may wish to cross-reference our earlier BlogPost-3 regarding the eight art contractors who have provided creative and production services for PS since its beginning, or, consult Will Eisner and PS Magazine.

If you feel that you should have been included in this list, please shoot us an email (see Contact Us in this blog's Sidebar), giving the dates and nature of your PS services. We'll endeavor to make amends in successive addenda.

The 105 confirmed to date are displayed below.
