Driben married the artist, actress and poet Louise Kirby just before he began to work for Harrison.
In 1944 he was offered the the unusual opportunity, for a pinup artist, of becoming the art director of the New York Sun, a post he retained until 1946. During the war, his popular painting of American soldiers raising the flag at Iwo Jima sparked a considerable amount of media attention.
In his later years Peter Driben turned, like many of his colleagues, to portrait and fine-art work, including a portrait of Dwight Eisenhower, which were organised into successful exhibitions by Louise.
