Artist and illustrator James Montgomery Flagg’s famous, patriotic Uncle Sam has remained a steadfast icon since its creation for the war effort during WWI. Flagg (1877 – 1960) minimized modeling expenses by using his own face for his iconic Uncle Sam image. Based upon a few drawings, St. Nicholas Magazine hired him when he was only 12 years old, and by age 15 he was a staff artist for Life and Judge. Flagg’s artwork was published by almost every major magazine, and he was elected to the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame in 1980.
