DiedSeptember 17 2011

Earle Oakes was a magic illustrator who has worked with Kaufman and Company and Hermetic Press. He did architectural renderings as a profession.[1]

An Army Aircorps pilot during World War II, Earle was a lifelong artist. He and his brothers produced architectural renderings of most major building projects in Philadelphia for forty years (1951-1992). Following "retirement" he applied his energy and talent to two of his passions–magic and origami–by illustrating books and magazines.

His work is noted for its remarkable detail and wonderful sense of line. The hands have an almost three-dimensional modeled quality.

According to Chuck Ramono's book Art of Deception, Oakes started doing magic illustrations part time in 1980 and went full-time in 1987, doing work for The Linking Ring. He began illustrating Magicana in Genii in 1999 when it was purchased from the Larsen family by The Genii Corporation.[2][3]
