(1922-2012) Larry Toschik illustrated books on Native Americans since the 1950s. He was, however, probably best known for his illustrations published in Arizona Highways magazine. While working part-time as a layout artist for the magazine, he showed some of his work to the Art Director, who asked him to work up illustrations and accompanying text for a 4-page spread. It developed into an 11-page feature in the March 1967 issue and assured much future work for the illustrator.
Toschik was doing his best work in the 1970s and was featured in Sunset Magazine. In addition, Toschik worked as Art Director for Arizona State University’s Bureau of Publications.
