This biography from the Archives of AskART:
An illustrator, teacher, and painter, Eugene Karlin had a career in New York as an illustrator for magazines including Fortune (1943 to 1945), Esquire, Look, New Republic and Sports Illustrated.  He also did numerous drawings for books, designed record covers for RCA and Columbia, and created fine-art paintings of landscapes and figurative subjects that combined realism and abstraction.

Karlin was a native of Kenosha, Wisconsin, and took art lessons as a child at the Jane Addams Hull House in Chicago.  He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Art Students League, and the Colorado Springs Fine Art Center.  He was a teacher in New York at the Parsons School of Design, Pratt Institute, Cooper Union, and the School of Visual Arts.
