|Earl Goes Big Game Hunting|
NOTE: I AM USING TEENY TINY IMAGES OF EARL MACPHERSON PAINTINGS AS ILLUSTRATIVE EXAMPLES ONLY. I DO NOT HOLD THE COPYRIGHT TO THEM. I TOOK THEM FROM EBAY, WHERE DOZENS OF HIS IMAGES ARE SHOWN EVERY SINGLE DAY BY PEOPLE ACTUALLY SELLING THE ITEMS (OR TRYING TO...) I AM NOT SELLING EARL MACPHERSON ILLUSTRATIONS. I AM, HOWEVER, MAKING FUN OF THEM.
I am no fan of cheesecake, and Earl MacPherson was the cheesiest of all. Hunting for gals in cowboy boots is GAME? Nice. Thanks Mac, I like women but don't think of them as game.
At least the Humorama pin up gag artists and illustrators like Eric Stanton, Bill Ward and Gene Bilbrew had a sense of humor about their smut. Mac wanted you to take it literally while he took it to the bank.
It is always a beautiful, sunny day in Mac's world. That is unless he wanted to paint an umbrella and a wet woman…but even then the sun would shine on the top of her stockings. Mac specialized in the upskirt. Now one of the most popular uses of a cellphone at the grocery store, but back then a way to sell your product to oglers and leering men. And apparently leering boys…as one of his posters shown here depicts a third grade teacher thrilling young Earl with her silk dress pulled high. Third grade! I guess Earl matured before me, I was still killing flies with a giant rubber band in third grade.

Well…it appears Earl made one of his biggest early bundles selling his work to Lucky Strike Tobacco during the war. Nice. Nothing better than equating sex with smoke. Light one up, boys…and dream of coming (home).
Earl's real name was Edgar and he was an Okie. Born in 1910. He painted rich people for a while in Honolulu, but soon put his efforts towards dirty playing cards. They sold well enough for Earl to buy a 4-acre ranch in California.
I guess his biggest accomplishment was the "Hunting with Macpherson" book, with women painted as game birds to be hunted and shot.
Mac's work adorned such notable products as "The Interstate Tire Company Calendar" and the "Odessa Spring Axle Company" of Odessa Texas. This one was Earl's mighty artistic leap into paper dolls, and allowed the owner to cut out the cuties and play with them. "The Ace Metal Spinning Company" of Buffalo, New York gave away an ink blotter in which one could obliterate a lingerie adorned blond with 5 inch heels with splatters from your pen. In his stunning set for "Hefner's Electric Motor Service (We Rewind and Repair) Earl revs the motors of a platinum blond delighted to be tacked to the inside of an electrician's tool chest.

Earl is best known for his instructional books in which he teaches others with his unhealthy attitude towards woman to paint. They litter antique malls across the country, always overpriced at like five bucks each.
