For two years this arrangement provided him with a steady stream of illustration work, from providing visual colour for articles and fictional stories, to the prestigious covers. This was a ‘golden age’ for illustration: during this period Maclean’s covers featured graphics, not photographs, almost exclusively. Add a comment

It had been an interesting and strange new artistic problem, painting over the North Atlantic, memorising visions from the co-pilot’s seat at night, working inside hangars to the roar of engines, painting in huts, painting in tents, drawing aircraft sketching incidents and personalities, yet I had a feeling I had not begun to fulfill my purpose; I had not truly expressed myself.

-Eric Aldwinckle, 1944
