This just in from Gunnar Andreassen.

[I just found an illustration by Covarrubias where Walt Disney is one of the many in it.

From the May 15, 1938, edition of American Vogue, Miguel Covarrubias’ illustration for an article titled “Our changing tastes … in 1938″. The celebrities of the moment, from left, are Benny Goodman, Ginger Rogers, Fred Astaire, Orson Welles, Robert Taylor, Lily Pons, Dali, Alfred Lunt, Lynn Fontaine, Walt Disney, Dorothy Thompson and Shirley Temple.

A couple of years ago I sent you another illustration by the same artist, with rather low resolution. And here is a blog about him:]
