    ⇧ That might be Fellows' weakest effort so far - it looks as if he wasn't really trying. Heck, I like the illustration below his better and we know, when he wants to, he can put almost any other illustrator to shame.

    "Nothing nude under the sun! :icon_scratch:??? Well that certainly wasn't true back in the mid 1970's on a couple of California beaches near Lompoc/Vandenberg AFB, CA. I may have been the only occupant of said beaches with even a stitch of clothing on, as I stood there in my chinos and pale blue sport shirt! Although my compadre did strip down to his "tightie-whities" in his effort to fit in, perhaps proving the wisdom of 'not ever allowing the inmates to leave the asylum! LOL. ;)

    Agreed. Fellows' work was far less inspired as the 40's rolled on.

    Skinny dipping is a fine American tradition! :D

    And not American alone. I can recall watching a documentary about the last Russian Czar, and in a brief clip, to both my astonishment and adolescent delight, his entire family had gone swimming sans togs. Evidently the custom then and there, and no one thought a thing.

    The gentleman wearing the Safari Jacket is a particularly handsome look for those of us inclined to explore in the great outdoors. ;)
