Harry Ekman pin-up artist

A Chicago artist, Harry Ekman worked side by side with fellow Sundblom shop veteran Gil Elvgren, developing a lush style in oils uncannily like that of his mentor

Ekman's girls have the same fresh, wholesome glow as Elvgren's, and are seen in such typical Elvgren situations as bicycling, wading, and walking the dog.

Assisting his colleague in the 1960s, Ekman may even have "ghosted" certain Gil Elvgren signed paintings. His own work appeared under both the Brown & Bigelow imprint and Shaw-Barton.

Like Elvgren, Ekman specialised in calendars but also worked in advertising.
