This is a cool etching from March 1913 Motion Picture Story Magazine. Alice Joyce by A. B. Shults. I like it not only because it is beautiful, but because it is by a fan who sent their art in at Alice Joyce's peak of popularity.

Wow, that is really excellent and beautiful work. I wonder if A.B. Shults wasn't a professional illustrator? If he wasn't he should have been. I like how the signature is worked into the bottom of the figure.

That's a good one. I wonder if Buster ever saw this. It would be nice to think he did.

I think it's new. I found this on Twitter, but lost the original user's handle.

Here's a beautiful one of Mary Fuller. I think these are fantastic. April 1913 Motion Picture Story.

A nice sketch of Ormi Hawley, from the May 1913 issue of Motion Picture Story.

It's amazing how he can suggest detail with just a few parallel lines—that's genius. Even the signature at the bottom is a thing of beauty.

Not quite fan art, but this is so strange I had to share! From June 1913 Motion Picture Story.
