Great thread idea !  Baker OA is majestic and so clean/bold compared to the printed art of his era...

I wasn't familiar with him, but I am a big panel fan. I particularly like the way he used curves to convey a sense of water and fluidity (for the scenes abutting water). But then, if you look at the piece posted by Ricksneatstuff, he used oddly angled and shaped panels to convey a foreign "jungle" sense you also see in old 1930's and 1940's flicks (like "Red Dust", or even the Tarzan serials). Clean lines, too.

What kind of portfolio is that?  Looks like a nice one to keep art safe.

The Code compliance notes at the top of the left page are hilarious.  Don't want the censor imagining cleavage on that woman!  Heaven forbid!!!
