Day For Night
Sunday Leftover Extra.
In the past, I have shown a couple of rarities from the great artist Noel Sickles. Today, while looking at illustrations by comic book artists for army newspapers and manuals, I ran cross these illustrations I believe are done by Sickles as well. They certainly are in his style and om some of them you can barely see a scribbled signature that looks like Sickles'.
These rare illustrations are all the more interesting, since they show Sickles doing what he does best: indicating the difference between day and night with his remarkable facillity in creating chiascuro shadows. The illustrations come from army manual FM 21-45: Protective measures,individuals and small units,March 10, 1942, which can be found here: http://www.ibiblio.org/cizewski/felixa/crowder/manuals.html
