Erich Sokol

His early Playboy work. I am reasonably certain this qualifies as a "blue" period (mildly nsfw; hat tip to Small Dead Animals).

Over a year ago, we began our series of posts on Playboy cartoonists with a feature highlighting Erich Sokol. Sokol was arguably the most gifted artist who ever worked for the magazine, with a keen eye for all of the elements of good drawing- composition, clear silhouettes, original color harmonies, interesting staging and a keen sense of light and shade. There's a lot to be learned from these masterful cartoons.
