DeVorss, Billy

William Albartus DeVorss, more commonly known as Billy DeVorss, was born in St. Joseph, Missouri in 1908. He graduated from the Kansas City Art Institute in 1934 and soon after moved to New York to pursue his career in both pin-up art and advertising.

While his work does not have the almost photographic quality of Vargas, it is his use of colour that make Billy DeVorss's work stand out. He worked almost exclusively in pastels, due to both the speed at which he could work and the effect it produced.
