How to Pose for Professional Artists – Strength Magazine – February, 1926

It is hard to lay down rules for what artists want in the way of model types, for they often look for a certain characteristic that comes somewhere near being like the character they are about to illustrate. I recall one occasion when I dropped in to see an artist about an engagement. He said he would like very much to engage me, but it so happened he was illustrating a serial story in which all the characters were colored folks and, consequently, felt sure that I would not do.
