Leon Helguera was an American artist and illustrator of Mexican descent who lived from 1899-1970. He designed the first United Nations Stamp and a number of U.S. Postage Stamps. Helguera also created advertising posters for Pan American Airways.

Uncle Sam is an iconic figure in American political posters. ‘I'm Counting On You,' created in 1943 by Helguera, builds on this well established imagery made famous by James Montgomery Flagg's 1917 "I Want You" recruitment poster. Here, Uncle Sam signals to the viewer to refrain from discussing information about their loved ones serving at home or abroad for fear of espionage. The image is one of many created during World War II to promote the war effort, that centered on the theme of "Careless Talk" in the face of home-front espionage.
