Day 14: Boris Artzybasheff
By Sam Reeve
Boris Artzybasheff, son of Ukrainian writer Mikhail Artzybasheff, was born in Kharkiv in 1899. He moved to North America and began working in an engraving shop. He’s best known for having illustrated hundreds of Tim Magazine covers from 1941 until he died in 1965, and he illustrated ads for several major companies, including Xerox.
His work, even the commercial stuff, was sometimes on the weird side. Enjoy.
