Howard L. Hastings (1887-1955) was born in NYC. In 1898 the family left NYC and moved to Westfield, NJ. The 1910 Census listed him as an art student, age twenty-two. In June of 1911, he began to study at the Art Students League of NY. In 1913, he began to sell illustrations for children's books published by Cupples & Leon of NY, such as "The Eight-Oared Victors" by Lester Chadwick, and "Comrades of the Saddle" by Frank Webster. His work also began to appear in magazines, such as "Field & Stream," "Recreation," "Boy's Life," "St. Nicholas," and "The Popular." He became a founding member of the Westfield Art Group, which still exists to this day. During WWI, he enlisted and served overseas with the 312th Engineers Corps. At that time the major source of power for construction projects were horses and mules, so his wartime experience with the U.S. Corps of Engineers gave him a solid knowledge of horses, which influenced his artistic interests. Hastings developed a reputation as an artist of wildlife, including horses, which was essential for illustrating Western pulp magazines. His cover paintings appeared on "Western Story," "North-West Stories," "Action Stories," "Lariat, Ace-High," "Air Stories," "West," "The Frontier," "Fawcett's Triple-X Magazine," and a plethora of other magazines like the example listed here.
