He studied in Zurich and Geneva before leaving Europe because of the war and arriving on Ellis Island in October In Vargas gained US citizenship, the same year that Esquire Magazine, shortly after Esquire introduced the "Varga Girl Calendar" which sold better than any other calendar published up to that time.
During the WWII years, Vargas further gained notoriety from a series of patriotic pin-ups for Hearst's American Weekly Magazine and his accommodating special requests from soldiers for mascots illustrations. In the 's he judged the Miss Universe Pageant, freelanced for fashion labels and continued to paint Hollywood stars during this time as well including the likes of Betty Grable, Ava Gardner and Marilyn Monroe.

So it's kind of getting a little sneak peak into my world. J : Nice, do you think that reflects - at all - currently, where you are right now with just your work, or just kind of a different idea you had-.
S : It's an idea, it's just some imagery that I wanted to create.

And this is just when you have your daydreams and nightmares and just kind of finding a balance and being able to live in - in the middle of both of those - kind of on the razor's edge.

It's more just - there's gonna be a lot of stuff like that but it's kind of, it's fun because it can be really broad and general because it's anything you can think of.
