I don't know what formal art training he had if any. He had natural talent and upon graduation from high school in the midst of the Great Depression was unable to find employment without experience. Fortunately, he was able to gain experience doing artwork for the WPA.A victim of McCarthyism black listing his publisher, he found employment doing artwork as a commercial artist. He sketched hair styles for a famous stylist. He also did the artwork for banners and memorabilia produced by Hanco Art Novelties [sic; Hanco Art Novelty Company was, at various times, located at 127 West 27th Street, New York City; 555 Broadway in New York City; Wayne, New Jersey; and 584–588 Broadway in New York City.].In the late 1960’s he also worked in comics under the pseudonym Galt for Fun and Pleasure newspapers.
