Orson Bryan Lowell was the son of landscape painter Milton Lowell. His artist father encouraged him to "draw something every day". He trained at the Art Institute of Chicago. Life Magazine hired him as a contributor in 1907. He also contributed pen and ink cartoons and color covers to American Girl, American Boy, Judge, Puck, and other magazines. He was in demand as a book illustrator and did some poster art as well. His humorous cartoons captured the social climate of the day. He had a long association with Life Magazine.
Half page cartoon. The mascot of Life Magazine was the cherub and he appears in every issue in the small illustrations throughout. He was also used by many of the regular cartoonists and cover artists.
