Earle Oakes
Born1923
DiedSeptember 17 2011

Earle Oakes was a magic illustrator who has worked with Kaufman and Company and Hermetic Press.

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

Oakes has illustrated Magicana in Genii since 1999 when it was purchased from the Larsen family by The Genii Corporation.

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.
