While working as a freelance fashion illustrator, he met Hugh Hefner and became a frequent contributor to Playboy Magazine.

Jazz, casinos, and nightlife along with historical athletic happenings such as the Olympics, the World Series, the Super Bowl, and the Kentucky Derby were all at Neiman’s fingertips.
