I can testify that such artists exist. When my daughter was in her twenties she was very seriously dating and living with a wonderful young man. He was/is an artist.
Buck and I were invited to their apartment for dinner one evening and on the walls of the entryway there were many, many framed photos (we thought) of lovely young women. They were exquisitely beautiful. Stunning. Each one increasingly more breathtaking than the one before it.
We commented on them and were bowled over to learn that Stanton had drawn them.
