When The House of Deception originally published the photo above, we were unable to identify the artist and his subject. On August 27, 2013, we received an email from the artist's son, Mike Zim of Columbus Ohio:

"Your bottom photo of the wrestler on the left making a bust of a seated man is my father, Wild Bill Zim. That photo is in an article in the August 8, 1948 Columbus Ohio Dispatch. The model was a family friend, Bill Watts."

With a subsequent email, Mr. Zim kindly attached scans of the 1948 Dispatch article as well as an image of one of his father's artworks (below). Mr. Zim explained, "He did the watercolor when he "went native" in Nicaraugua in the 30's. Had 3 wives there, who were sisters!"

Mike Zim is in the process of researching and writing his father's biography. If you would like to contact him, you may email him at mikewzim at gmail dot com.
