I was inspired by Twyla and Lindsey's "Barbie Wednesday" posts over at their Two Crazy Crafters blog, to do a post of my own about Ken today.

This artwork from a story in McCall's magazine is by Varady. He reminded me of Ken, too - the chiseled features.
The story was about a confirmed bachelor - perhaps he was a friend of Ken's? Could be.
