Happy birthday to illustrator Constantin Alajalov! He was born in Rostov, Russia on November 18, 1900, and immigrated to New York City in 1923. Mr. Alajalov became a US citizen in 1928. He died in 1987.
I love his humorous illustration. Some of his best illustrations were covers for The New Yorker, and the old Saturday Evening Post. He had a light touch, and a wonderful style. Definitely a great role model for someone like me.
