Put not your trust in princes:
In the children of men, in whom there is no salvation.

A little more on Gil Elvgren and the 1951 article from Modern Man - This illustration is “Jill Needs Jack” from 1950. This illustration featured Elvgren’s favorite model Marlene Reilly. Elvgren liked his models young (Marlene was about 20) with high foreheads, small ears, and eyes set wide apart. Noses should be pert and short, lips full. Elvgren liked a small waist and long legs. He expected his models to be full-brested but not overblown. Have nice arms and hands. In his paintings, Elvgren noted that his girls’ legs are longer than in nature, the waste is slimmer and like a plastic surgeon, Elvgren would make many changes in the appearance of his girls required with the easiest being a change of the nose. Some interesting facts about Elvgren and his calendar work from the article.

I want to get more comfortable being uncomfortable. I want to get more confident being uncertain. I don’t want to shrink back just because something isn’t easy. I want to push back, and make more room in the area between I can’t and I can.
