Thanks Randall for your post on the great illustrators of the past. One of my favorite artists is Robert Riggs. A while back I bought an old copy of Fortune magazine, an issue that dealt entirely with New York City. Robert illustrated an article on the NYPD. I love the massiveness of his figures, I am sure that Arnold Friberg was looking at Rigg's work when he did his Canadian Mountie series.
Here is a sampling of the illustrations from that article. Amazing work.
