Neysa McMein

Neysa McMein (1888-1949) was an artist. She drew the newspaper strip Deathless Deer (written by Alicia Patterson Guggenheim), about an immortal Egyptian princess awakened in 1940s New York. She illustrated covers for magazines like McCalls and Saturday Evening Post, eventually becoming a well-respected portrait artist. She was commissioned to paint the first Betty Crocker portrait.
