|Sam Norkin self-portrait|
From 1940 to 1956, Norkin's Hirschfeld-esque illustrations were featured in the New York Herald Tribune and then from 1956-1982 his work was featured weekly in the New York Daily News.
Sam Norkin was also hired to create many record covers over the years which is the work I most enjoy of his. So if you've always just thought of him as just a Hirschfeld imitator, then check these album covers out. Several of these covers were clearly Hirschfeld-influenced, but most were drawn and designed in his own graphically distinctive style.
Thanks to John Wendler for supplying some of the cover images.
