David Wright
David Wright (b. 12 December 1912; d. 25 May 1967) was born into an artistic family: both his parents were artists. He joined his uncle's studio after leaving school, and in 1941 was hired by The Sketch to paint pin-ups of glamorous women, most of whom were modelled on his wife Esme. During the Second World War he did his national service as a driving instructor for the armed forced in Wales, which allowed him to continue his illustration work, and he became one of the country's most popular pin-up artists. In the 50s his work appeared in Men Only.
